Dominique Marie Flore
Marie is a 41-year-old woman, a mother, and a merchant who sells fresh staple foods retail (tomatoes and more) according to the season. She has been doing so for nine years at a local market. She is very familiar with suppliers and especially with her customer base, which she has acquired over the course of time, thanks to her experience in this domain.

But she constantly finds herself facing inventory shortages, since she has to sell her inventory in order to get more, due to her meager capital. She would like to increase her inventory of crates of tomatoes to have plenty, enabling her to satisfy further the constant customer demand and to avoid shortages. She will save her profits not only to expand her business but also to meet the needs of her family.
