Janet sells cows in a famous Pugu cow auction in Dar es Salaam. She buys cows from the Central regions of Tanzania, loads them in trucks and offers them wholesale to businessmen who slaughter the animals and sell the meat. She has been in this business for four years now.
She wants to buy more animals to enjoy economies of scale. Previously she used to hire a truck with her business colleagues in order to share transport charges. This limited the number of animals she could buy at a time. She is now planning to hire the whole truck by herself so that she can buy a reasonable number of animals. She is in need of USD1200.
