Samar's story

Samar is a 44-year-old woman who is married to a car retailer.
Samar was able to open a small food market (mini-market) in her neighborhood at the beginning of this year. She has been filling it with all the products that the customers in the area are asking for. For this reason, she has gained a respectable number of customers each day. Now Samar wants to expand her business and turn it into a supermarket by merging another store with hers and bringing in more variety to what she sells.
