Rosa Aurora
Rosa is forty-three years old and lives in a suburban area, Fortin de Guayaquil. This is an area of dirt paths and mountans. She has a street-stall where she sells "bolones" (mashed plantains covered with cheese or pork shaped like a a baseball). She started her "bolones" business to support her daughter after her husband left her and bit-by-bit, with effort, has gained clustomers. Now she works from five in the afternoon to ten at night. She makes the "balones" with a large metal pot of boiling oil that she puts the plantains in. She then takes them out, mashes them, and then cover them with cheese and pork. To get more customers, she wants to buy a cart with the loan. In the future, she would like to expand her business and she wants her daughter to finish school successfully.
