Suzanne Noelle
Suzanne is a 48-year-old woman merchant who has a retail trade in tomatoes, oil, smoked fish, peanuts,… according to the season. She has been selling at a local market for five years. She has good knowledge of suppliers and especially of her customer base, which she has acquired over the course of time, thanks to her experience in this domain.

But she constantly finds herself short of inventory because she has to sell her entire inventory before procuring more again. This is due to her meager capital. She would like to increase her inventory to do better satisfying the constant demand from her customers and to avoid inventory shortages. She will save her profits for not only expanding her business but also providing for her family.
