Rosa
View original language description ↓
Rosa works selling magazines. She rents a space in a downtown area in the city of Huancayo where it is very convenient for her to sell her magazines. She has been 35 years in this business, and hence knows very well what her clients buy and thus knows what magazines to buy. Rosa lives with her two children, and they help her organizing the magazines. Rosa has noticed that taste changes with time, and that the classical magazines no longer sell well with the newer clients. That is why Rosa would like to buy a set of new and varied magazines, and she is asking for a loan with the promise to repay it responsibly and on time. Rosa considers that when a person offers a lending hand to others, that person deserves her utmost respect.
