Helene Marie's story

Helene is a 51 year old woman, who is married with six children aged between 19 and 28. Three of them still attend school. She is a saleswoman and has been selling retail goods (peanuts, corn, couscous, soap, oil, and pasta ...) according to the seasons in a local market for several years. She knows her suppliers well, and above all she knows her clientele well, she has acquired them as the years go by thanks to her great experience in this field. However, she is constantly short of stock as she has to sell all her stock to be able to buy new supplies because she has only limited capital. She would like to stock up on boxes of soap, oil and pasta to have a good stock which would enable her to satisfy her clientele, answer the constant demand of her clientele and avoid stock shortages. She would save up her profits not only to expand her business, but also to provide for the needs of her family.
