Salum is married with one child. He lives in Vituka in Temeke District of Dar es salam. Salum sells maize in retail. He buys the maize in large quantities from nearby regions, stock them and resell them in retail. Salum is planning to improve his business by having enough stock of maize especially in this starting rain season. Because roads to up country are not easily passable during rain seasons,it si better to have enough stock now.
Extra stock demands some more packaging materials, carriage costs and storage costs.
