Rosa Cristina
View original language description ↓
Mrs. Rosa L. is a very active and hardworking woman who has always tried to get ahead in life. She has 3 children for whom she has struggled to offer an education. She is married and her husband collaborates with her business endeavors, supporting her in every way. She used to sell cellular phones and $9.99 toys, but she did not generate enough profits. So she decided to start a natural health supplement business which she herself runs, thus avoiding having to pay any employee wages and yielding bigger profits. Her goals are to recruit 12 people in order to train them to promote her products.

They will need to work arduously for a year in order to obtain the best prizes that she will give to her employees as incentives. She hopes to the beautiful house of her dreams.
