Mrs. S. is a vegetable seller who has been running her business in the market for years. She then hurries to deliver her items by trailer-motorcycle to the market where she retails them. She is married, with four school-aged kids, while her husband is a family contributor who works in construction. Mrs. S. is seeking assistance in order to improve her vegetable trade by buying greater quantities of vegetables to sell. (Mrs. S. was not available for a picture, so her husband is pictured instead.)
