Loan Proposal

I will buy a shaft cutter that I will use to cut fodder for my cows.this will make my work easier in feeding the cows hence I can be able to attend to other areas in my farm.a shaft cutter goes for $300.I have saved $293.I will b cutting fodder to tiny pieces feed the cows and store the rest. this way the storage space will no longer be a problem.feeding the cows will be taking 5-20 minutes in a day.this will translate into more time to attend to their work on th farm and increased profit as I will not require to employ somebody to feed the cows
