Maria Rosa
Maria Rosa is 40 years old, married and lives with her family in Quito, Ecuador. Always the hard worker, Maria Rosa began raising hamsters, something her mother taught her, about a year ago in order to help her family make ends meet. After doing this for a while, she decided to try for a loan for the first time in order to buy some pigs, something she hopes will increase her income significantly. Her dream is to eventually own enough pigs to have a full-fledged pig farm, something that can help secure a good life for her and her family.
