Gard is a shrewd young man who saw himself into the cattle trade at a tender age to prepare for his family's future early enough. He was subjected to severe poverty during his childhood and he does not want the same to befall his children. He is still challenged by limited capital as well as grazing land, but he hopes he will be able to accumulate some funds to buy more land and buy enough cows to transport to the city. Gard will achieve this dream with the help of loans. He is very shrewd and persevering.
