She sells the milk from her cows in street markets and also to order. In addition, she makes cheese. On this occasion, she would like a loan to invest in feed for her animals. She says that she needs to buy balanced feed, sutuchi from the brewery ('sutuchi' is the final residue from making corn-based drinks which is used as animal feed) and mineral salts. Marcelina is requesting this loan to invest in buying balanced feed and vitamins for her animals. She appreciates the loan she has been granted and is grateful for it. She pledges to make her repayments in a disciplined manner.
