Business plan 
Ruth has about 5 pigs at the moment that she rears under a broken sty. Ruth says that the costs have been very high of recent since the feeds are scarce and so she has to buy some improved animal feeds that will help the pigs to mature faster and thus she needs to take out a loan such that she can be able to buy animal feeds and make more profits since her pigs will now be of the right weight and will fetch her a lot of money that she will use to educate her children.
Personal situation 
Ruth studied up to primary seven and dropped out due to lack of money. She later started selling raw food stuffs as well farming in order to gain income to cater for her children.
