Nicolle Josette's story

Nicolle is a married woman of 49, mother of four children whose ages range from 12 to 23 years of age. Three of the children attend school. For 15 years, she has been retailing foodstuffs (tomatoes, onions, and peppers) according to the season, in a local market. She knows her suppliers well and especially her clientele which she has acquired over the years thanks to her experience in this business.

Nicolle would like to buy crates of tomatoes, a sack of onions, and crates of peppers. so as to have a good stock that will allow her to respond to the constant demand of her clientele and to avoid running out of something. She will save her profit not only to grow her business, but also to support her family.
