E. requests a loan to increase the size of her business by buying more pigs and goats and farming more cassava. Her business is going to succeed because there is a ready market for the animals and cassava. Due to her experience in this business, she is well known in her community for raising healthy animals and has a lot of customers who come from far and near.
