Milka is a 45 year-old owner of a kiosk. She sells items such as milk, bread, cooking oil, flour, body oil, etc. to nearby residents. She has been in this business for eight years. Milka is married and has five children; two boys and three girls, aged from 10 to 28 years old.
The primary business challenges she faces are low sales due to the low income of her customers, plus a high electricity bill for the refrigerator in her kiosk.

In the future, Milka hopes to expand her business to accommodate other products required by her customers. In five years, she dreams of being the leading supplier of the products she sells to the surrounding residential area.
