Mrs. Mao K., 41, is a widow and the mother of two children, both of whom are students and dependent on her income. She currently lives with her older mother who stays at home to do housework or assists her in the business.

Also, she stores them in her house for a while before selling, thus gaining profit. Mao K. is looking for assistance to increase the financial capital of her enterprise.
