Mr. Maloune is a baker by trade who is also a small-scale livestock farmer. He is married but does not live with his family, since he has left them in the village and is here to work in the city. With this loan, he wants to round out the funds he has in order to purchase a cow to raise and then resell. He has acquired ten years of experience in this domain.

His expenses include payments for a room he rents and the associated electricity bill. Each month, he sends money to his family back in the village. For his future plans, he would like to diversify his products and services, increase the number of animals to raise, and indeed go as far as owning his own ranch.
