Business plan 
Susan has over 4 pigs that she raises under zero grazing system though she ties them under trees. Susan says that this system was very good though of recent the dry season has kind of affected the growth of her pigs as they have now decreased in size since the feeding is not good as the grass that they feed on has been cleared for crop farming and thus feeding them has proved to be difficult that is why Susan wants to take out a loan and buy animal feeds that will help her pigs to grow very well and thus she will be able to earn more from them as they will be of good quality. Susan wants to buy for them feeds and to ensure that they gain more weight which will attract more customers. Susan says the profits will help to take care of herself and her children.
