Juana is a 29-year-old married woman who lives with her husband in a house they recently bought. From the time she was young, she helped her mother run a small family convenience store. Now that she is living with her husband, she too decided to open a similar store. While her husband works for the city, she works in the small convenience store.

Today she is seeking funds to buy more merchandise in bulk for her store. In particular, she feels that if she is can purchase goods in bulk (e.g., sugar, flour, and oil), then she would be able to sell her goods at more affordable prices.
