Business plan 
Robinah rears pigs at the moment using the zero grazing system where she built for them a sty such that she can monitor them constantly and also keep them away from harsh weather conditions and thieves. She says that at the moment her main challenge is feeds for her animals since they don’t move out to look for it on their own, she says that since all area is cultivated, there is no grass in the gardens and the pigs have also malnourished since it’s hard for her to give the animals enough feeds thus she decided to come to SYPO for a loan such that she can be able to buy animal feeds for her pigs. Robinah says that her animals will be able to recover and put on enough weight and in return fetch her more profits since customers always buy good looking animals very fast.
