Hippolyte is a young man, 27 years old, who is unmarried and without children. He has been a poultry farmer in a suburb for four years already. He buys chicken eggs which he incubates until they hatch. He raises the young chicks until maturity and then resells them. His ambitious character enabled him to put his all into starting this business, resulting in a considerable increase in the number of chicks in not many years.

But these numbers have been difficult for him to manage given his slight capital preventing him from stocking up appropriately on feed for his hens, which have shrunk significantly in number over time.

He would therefore like this loan to buy sacks of "provende", corn, and soybeans enabling him to feed his chicks well, better allowing him to sell them over the holidays, and thus increasing his profits. The profits will enable him not only to grow and extend his business with the goal of becoming a major poultry farmer but also to support himself day to day.
