Rosa Argentina
View original language description ↓
Rosa, 51, is married and she and her husband, a cab driver, have 3 children, all of whom are in college. Despite having few resources, this couple has managed to set up a better future for their children who expect to go on to professional careers. For now, though, Rosa and her husband must still support them.


Rosa is a woman who has contributed to improving her neighborhood. She's the director of an "Apadrinamientos" (Mentoring) program for local children, a project funded by the European Union, and she serves as the neighborhood's "Lider Comunal".


Rosa is applying for a loan because she has to complete a wall that doesn't quite stretch all the way around her small house. The wall will provide extra security for the house which stands empty most days because the children are away at college and Rosa and her husband are away working.
