Rosa
Rosa, 49, is a woman who is very committed to her work. She is married to Alberto, 49, and together they have managed to get their children an education. Today their children are grown and live independently, having taken up the reins of responsibility.

Rosa owns a house made of adobe which she acquired through the support of her husband.

For 10 years she has been farming alongside Alberto, producing organic cocoa and coffee in the valley. This has been a great means of support for her family ever since they started this activity.

They work just about all year on the various farming tasks, at times relying on the help of dayworkers. What Rosa likes about her work are the earnings that they are paid when they sell their products to the wholesalers in their area. One difficulty they have is transporting their products; they are hoping to acquire a small vehicle in the future.

In order to increase their income, they are thinking about expanding their cocoa plantings, since the parcels of land that they have are very fertile and they can produce very good quality cocoa pods.

One of their plans for the future is to open a business consisting of a small grocery store, so that they can generate another stream of income in addition to their farming business, since there is a lot of demand for this type of business in their neighborhood. They are seeking 1,500 Peruvian sole to buy sacks of guano (organic fertilizer), and to hire workers to weed their coffee fields. They hope that in this way they will obtain, as always, optimal quality products to sell to the wholesalers.

Rosa de 49 años es una madre muy comprometida con trabajo y casada con Alberto de 49 años. Ambos tienen como logro al haber educado a sus hijos hoy ya mayores e independientes por las buenas riendas de la responsabilidad.
Es propietaria de una vivienda a base de adobe adquirida con el apoyo de su esposo.
Desde hace 10 años viene dedicándose junto a Alberto a producir cacao orgánico así como café del valle siendo este un gran sustento para su familia desde el inicio de sus actividades.
Siempre contando en ocasiones con el apoyo de jornaleros trabajan prácticamente todo el año en las diversas tareas de campaña.
Lo agradable de su trabajo son las ganancias que perciben al expender sus producción en los centro de acopio de su localidad para el cual tienen actualmente dificultades en cuanto al transporte, esperando adquirir un vehiculo menor a futuro.
A manera de mejorar sus ingresos tiene en mente ampliar sus plantaciones de cacao puesto que sus parcelas poseen tierras muy fértiles y llegan a producir mazorcas de muy buen calidad.
Uno de sus planes a futuro es la apertura de un negocio consistente en una tienda a abarrotes pequeña para generar ingresos paralelos a sus actividades en el campo siendo este un negocio con mucha demanda en su barrio. Desea contar con 1,500 nuevos soles para la compra de sacos con guano de isla y la contrata de jornaleros para el deshierbo de sus plantaciones de cacao esperando así obtener como siempre una calidad óptima para los acopiadores.
