Hence, in order to keep his business running, Matt Roloff took out a PPP government loan for $205K. Even though the farms have recovered after the initial loss, it still has a long way to get back to normal. Well, the Little People Big World previously had no plans of retiring anytime soon. However, an insider reveals to TheSun that he’s now thinking to retire alongside his current girlfriend, Caryn.
