Karen

Karen has been working with her mother selling gas since she was ten years old. Her mother's separation from her father was Karen's main motive in helping her mother. She received help from her father to begin her business a year ago. She keeps her business open for 24 hours a day if there is demand for her product. She rents the locale where she has both her business and her home.



Karen will invest her credit in buying more cylinders, and she will take advantage of the low price she is being offered so that she will make a larger profit.



Karen is a 20 year old single mother. She has a daughter who is in school. Thanks to her job, her daughter is getting an education. Her mother helps her when she needs it. She hopes to save money to buy herself a plot of land and little by little build her home.
