Marie Marguerite's story

Marie Marguerite is a 48-year-old single woman and the mother of four children whose ages range between 4 and 30. Two of her children are in school.

Marie Marguerite has been involved in retail and wholesale commerce for the past 17 years. Depending on the season, she sells fresh produce (fruits) at a local market. She knows her suppliers and especially her customers very well, for having built her customer base over time, thanks to her experience in this field. However, because of her small capital, she is constantly out-of-stock since she has to sell off her stock before she can buy more merchandise.

Marie Marguerite would like to increase her stock of fruits, which will allow her to better meet the constant demand from her customers. A larger stock will also prevent stock shortages and will help her to increase her profits.

Marie Marguerite intends to save her profits, not only to expand her activity, but also to meet her family's needs.
