                            (KShs)                                                                      Sales per month (in '000)

                                    20                                                                            80

                                    25                                                                            120

                                    30                                                                            160

                                    35                                                                            200

                                    40                                                                            240

                                    45                                                                            285

                                    50                                                                            320
