With the loan she receives, she will buy 200 000 francs worth of fabric, a ton of rice for 250 000 francs and a sheep for 50 000 francs, so that she can resell the fabric for for 225 000 francs, the rice for 257 500 francs and the sheep for 75 000 francs, after raising it for 6 months. The profits generated by her business will enable her to build her savings and take care of her family's healthcare and food needs.
