Instead of bumping down to the lowest AWG cable you have, why not bump up to the next size you have, even if that's 14awg? Its only 15' max you said, and it's your problem for not having any of the proper cable, not the customers.
i would need 2 14/3 and a 14/2.. thats not going down a tiny hole and into tiny terminals

Tap conductor rule! :laughing:

No seriously though.. could splice smaller conductors on the ends. At least the majority of the run is in oversized copper to eliminate the voltage drop. Just trying to help.. I live far from suppliers and big box stores and often get stuck with the dilemma of how to make things work. It's annoying.
