    Maura has been raising animals for years and has a lot of experience in this business. Currently, she raises chickens, sheep, turkeys, sheep, and pigs. She is married with eight children. Six of her children are married. One of her children goes to high school and still lives at home. Her husband is unable to work, so her family depends on her to make an income. However, her husband bought the land they have for Maura to raise her animals. Her biggest struggle is that when one of her animals get sick, Maura says it is hard to save them from dying because there is no way to get her animals to a veterinarian. Furthermore, it is very expensive to pay for the visit and the medication to help the ailing animal. She plans to use her loan to buy more chickens, turkeys and pigs. In additions, she hopes to purchase more feed for her animals. Maura wants to support her child in high school because she wants them to get a great career after finishing school. Her goal is to sell all her grown animals for a good profit, so she can buy new young animals to raise. Her profits will be used to feed the three family members in her home. In addition, she plans to use her profits to buy new animals.
