Aristide is 28 years old and he is still single. He makes a living by selling a variety of goods. This is his third successful year in the business. Aristide runs his business from 6 am to 8 pm every day.

Aristide needs to expand his shop by adding a variety of foodstuffs: mainly sugar, rice, beans, Irish potatoes, etc. These additional goods will hopefully allow him to earn more profits than before. If this plan is successful, Aristide will continue to reinvest in his business and build a secure future for his business.
