Since the lady in question here gets goods worth 200 and another rs.800 in cash, she made a profit of 1000. consequently the shopkeeper faces a loss of 1000 (since the other shopkeeper neither gets any profit or loss)

@Priyanka’s right.
 
S1 sold 200Rs worth of goods. got paid 200Rs. Transaction neutralised.
S1 gave change to customer 800rs.
S1 gave full refund of 1000rs to S2. 
 
800+1000=1800rs.
