Irene Christie's story

Irene is a young woman who is 33 years old and single. She has three children aged between six months and 11 years old. Two of these children already go to school. She has opened and been managing a small perfume shop for the past two years. Thanks to her good experience she has build up a loyal customer base, but her small capital means she has regular concerns about her stock of leading products running out permanently. This is why she wants to boost her stock of body lotions and soaps by buying several cartons so she can satisfy customer demand, as well as increase her sales and her profits. Irene will reinvest part of of her profit to expand her perfume shop further and the rest will be used to provide for her family's needs.
