Terence Lesli
Lesli is a young, 37-year-old woman who is also a mother. She opened a small perfume store, which she has now run for one year. Thanks to her good experience, she has built up a loyal customer base. However, her low capital means that she often has permanent shortages of stocks of her most popular products.

This is why Lesli wants to increase her stock of lotions and soaps by buying several boxes to satisfy her customers. She also plans to buy a box of hair extensions, which will allow her to increase her sales and profits. She will reinvest part of her profits in expanding her perfume store, and the rest will be used to provide for her family.
