Albertine Cézarine's Group's story

Albertine is a 32 year old woman who is married with a six-year old child who goes to school already. She also has two other people dependent on her. She is a businesswoman who for 16 years has been selling retail her fresh produce (manioc, plantains, tomatoes, chili, palm nuts, and fruit) according to the seasons at a local market. She has a good understanding of her suppliers as well as her clientele which thanks to her experience in this business she has gathered over the years. However, she is constantly out of stock of certain products due to the fact that she has to sell all her goods in order to be able to buy more because she has so little capital. She would like to buy a sack of pistachios, some chili, maniocs and bunches of plantains to have a good reserve which would enable her to better satisfy the constant demand of her clientele and avoid being sold out. She will save up her profits to not only enhance her business, but also provide for her family.
