Rosita, as her neighbors and clients call her lovingly, is a caring, and responsible mother completely dedicated to her family. Ever since she became married, she decided she would abandon her native town of Yunguyo and look for better job opportunities. It is so that she now lives in the city of Juliaca, and is satisfied by counting on the unconditional support of her husband and their two children, who give her the strength needed to continue her business. She sells a variety of socks; merchandise which she obtains in the city of Desaguadero, and then sells in the cities of Cuzco and Arequipa. Her husband works providing transportation to those cities. Rosita’s dream is to increase her merchandise, and not only sell socks, but undergarments for women, men, and children. She is sure that with your support and this investment she will be able to better her business.
