Business plan 
Margret has been growing crops for the past 15 years where she would plant crops like groundnuts, maize, beans and potatoes using rudimentary means. She would like this time to use a tractor and dig two acres of land and then she applies organic fertilizers after which she will re-dig to plant the maize after 2 months she will apply pesticides this is done to make sure she gets better yields. After 4 months, she harvests while its raw, and she sells it to those who take it for roasting and selling in markets, she also boils some and sells it in matale. She plans to save enough money to buy more cows such that she increases on her milk production.
