Upon receiving his loan, he plans to increase his available merchandise, adding 5 cartons of beef, 2 cartons of oxtail, 2 cartons of chicken thighs, a carton of chicken wings and 2 cartons of saltwater fish like cod and emperor fish.

In the future, he wants to be a serious businessman, open a cold storage room and sell cartons of fresh food wholesale.
