He says that when he sells out the crops, he sells it in the same area to avoid transportation costs and because it is safer to sell his product within the community. He has other income such as money his children give him.

He is requesting this loan to buy some of the supplies for the garden and to buy animals. He estimates that this credit will be helpful because he will be able to invest more in the production of even more animals and then sell at a better price.
