Don Donald is 38 years old; he is a father to three children. With his wife, they sell clothing and cosmetics. Before he used to be a security guard for many years but was very tired and that is why he quit. With a part of his severance pay he invested in his wife’s business, selling clothing, and both of them manage it. They hope to have more profits so that they can improve their home. He has already replastered his walls and put ceramics in the living room. What he wants now is to put ceramics on the porch so it will be easier to clean and it will be more convenient for his family. His plan is to travel to other departments to increase his sales since in the northern part of the country sales are good, which will allow him to increase his inventory and expand his business.
