Anastasie
Anastasie is a 46-year-old married mother of five children, aged between 18 and 30. She also has three of her grandchildren under her care, and three of her own children are still at school.

Anastasie works selling foodstuffs (peanuts, pepper, onions and okra), and has done so for the past two years. She does not have a lot of capital, which means she has to buy her merchandise in small quantities, wait until it is all sold, and then buy more. This leads to a permanent stock shortage, and dissatisfaction among her small customer base.

If she increases her capital, not only will she be able to increase her stock, but she will also meet her customers’ needs by avoiding stock shortages, be able to sell more, and see her profits increase. Anastasie plans to reinvest part of her profits in her business, and will save the rest for when her children go back to school.
