He is seeking a loan which will allow him to increase his stock in spices (white pepper, black pepper, hot pepper in bags, chicken spices, fish spices, pork spices, …). The profits that come from this loan will be partially reinvested into his business to grow it, and the rest will help him to meet the needs of his family.
