Teodora M. is 67 years old, single and has two grown children who help out with household expenses; however, because she is a determined woman, she has her own business selling clothing. She sells slacks, shorts, boys' suits, girls' dresses and sandals. She has had this business for 41 years, and it is the highlight of her day as she does not like being cooped up at home with nothing to do. She contends that she will work the rest of her life and that work is her greatest enjoyment. She says that she needs to buy merchandise that she does not carry at present so that she can offer a broader selection to her customers.
