This is the first loan Ibrahim is seeking from SMT. He is requesting a loan of Le 3,000,000.00 to enable him to buy more cattle. He buys the cattle from Doguliya and other villages surrounding Kabala. The price per cattle varies depending on the size of the cattle. Prices range from Le 70,000.00 to 100,000.00. He then sells cattle in Kabala for prices ranging from Le 80,000 to 110,000.00. Ibrahim's immediate goal is to build a house, manage his resources well, and invest in the education of his children.
