She is a storekeeper in a market in the square where she has been selling fresh food (plantains) for 20 years already. It is thanks to this business that she can provide for her family. Now she would like to increase her quantity of plantains by buying wholesale, which will limit her travel and reduce the cost of transporting her merchandise. Buying plantains wholesale to become a distributor alongside her colleagues will allow her to increase her profits, to expand her business with time, and especially to save for her children's next back-to-school season. She would like to be a place to stock up in the future.
