Business plan 
Florence says that her cows are cross breeds and they need a lot of attention from time to time since some conditions can be a bit fatal to them for instance harsh weather conditions like prolonged droughts and heavy rainfall can use them to die if not looked after very well and that is why she built them a good kraal with a roof to save them from direct sunshine and also ensure that they get water from time to time such that they boost their milk production. Florence says she has been very good at following almost all the instructions that were given to her by the Agricultural officer in regards to proper cattle keeping. Florence is now more than worried that if she does not act quickly, the disease is likely to cross over and her cows might be affected and she is worried she might lose them that is why she wants to take out a loan and buy preventive vaccine and medicine to give them since she does not have money at the moment and yet the medicine is quite expensive. Florence says this will save her animals from the fatal disease and thus save her business and she will be able to make her profits to educate her children.
