Jogeswar is a 26-year-old physically-challenged person living with his father, wife and a son (age 6 months). He has been engaged in the activity of sheep farming for the past six years. He purchases lambs from the market and sells them when they grow up. Presently he has 20 sheep in his farm house.
Jogeswar wants to purchase 20 more sheep for his farm house, make his farm house bigger, and increase his monthly income. He wants to reduce the gap between the demand for sheep from his customers and the supply of sheep from his farm house to the market to satisfy his customers.
Jogeswar has requested a loan of 30,000 Indian rupees to purchase more lambs. He has a dream of giving his family a better standard of living and saving some money for his family’s future.
