Rosa
Rose is 50 years old and is married to her husband, Esteban, who has a job and is a father to their 2 children. They live together in their own house. Rosa works selling cold drinks, such as soda and beer. For this reason, she has a refrigerator where she refrigerates her drinks every day so they reach the optimal temperature to be sold. She complements what she makes selling drinks by selling food such as chaufa rice, fried chicken, carne asada, and other dishes. She manages this business in the evenings and also every weekend (with the support of her children).

She has had this business for 8 years and enjoys it because she can make money to support her husband with the household expenses, since his salary often isn't enough to cover the cost of their children's university studies. She considers her business a success due to the regularity with which her customers buy everything that she offers to sell. For this reason, she wants to buy another refrigerator and continue working with great enthusiasm.

At this time, she is asking for 1,000 sols (US$375) to buy soda, beer, and various food ingredients such as rice, condiments/seasonings, meat, and vegetables, which she needs to make food dishes.
