forget₂ (fgModule K) (Module K) creates all finite limits. #

And hence fgModule K has all finite limits.

Future work #

After generalising fgModule to allow the ring and the module to live in different universes, generalize this construction so we can take limits over smaller diagrams, as is done for the other algebraic categories.

Analogous constructions for Noetherian modules.

Finite limits of finite dimensional vectors spaces are finite dimensional, because we can realise them as subobjects of a finite product.
