Anathalie has been selling timber and this is her fifth successful year in this business. Anathalie is 47 years old and married with two children. The hours of her business are from 7 am to 6 pm every day.

Anathalie, after realizing that she is not able to satisfy the demands of her customers because of an insufficient number of machines, would like to request one more additional machine which will allow her to cut more timber to sell. Thus, she will be able to satisfy the demands of her customers and she hopes that her profits will increase. With these profits, Anathalie plans to keep reinvesting for better financial stability and a better future for her family.
