She runs a small business raising sheep and cattle. Her husband helps her raise the animals. She has practiced this business for nine years. She purchases and sells her animals at the weekly markets in her area.

The animal-raising business is profitable for her. After her sales she can expect a profit between 20,000 to 75,000 F over eight months. The profits from the RMCR loan allow her to cover needs for healthcare, clothing, and her children's schooling.
