She has a good knowledge of her suppliers, and especially her clientele, which she has acquired over time thanks to her experience in this field. However, she constantly finds herself out of stock because she must first sell all of her stock in order to procure a new batch, due to the tininess of her supply of capital. She wishes to buy a truckload of plantains in order to have a good stock which will allow her to better meet the constant demand of her clientele and avoid running out of stock. She will save the profits not only to grow her business but also to meet the needs of her family.

Rosalie Soange est une femme de 31 ans fiancée mère de 3 enfants dont l'âge varie entre 11 mois et 10 ans. Elle est commerçante et fait la vente en détail des vivres frais (maniocs, plantains, noix de palmes, macabo et légumes) en fonction des saisons dans un marché de la place depuis 5 ans. Elle a une bonne connaissance des fournisseurs, et surtout de sa clientèle qu'elle a acquise au fil du temps grâce à son expérience dans ce domaine. Mais elle se retrouve constamment en rupture de stock parce qu'elle est obligée de faire écouler tous le stock pour pouvoir s'en procurer à nouveau ceci à cause de la petitesse de son capital. Elle souhaitera acheter un camion des régimes de plantains pour avoir un bon stock ce qui permettra de mieux satisfaire la demande constante de sa clientèle et d'éviter les ruptures de stocks. Elle économisera son bénéfice pour non seulement agrandir son activité mais aussi subvenir aux besoins de sa famille.
