Amelia Rosalina,
Initially, when she started working, Amelia sold spices and condiments from a traveling cart. It took a long time before she had the opportunity to open her own small store in a new market near her home. Once she opened her grocery store, she changed her business focus from condiments to groceries. She has now had her business for eight years. In the future, she would like to have enough money to buy a mototaxi to lease out.

In her household, she is responsible for paying for the food while her husband is responsible for the rest of the household expenses.

Al inicio, cuando recién empezó a trabajar, Amelia se dedicaba a vender especerías y condimentos en un puesto ambulante. Estuvo buen tiempo en ello hasta que tuvo la oportunidad de hacerse de un puesto propio en un mercado nuevo cerca de su casa. Una vez en su puesto de abarrotes cambió la venta de condimentos a la de abarrotes.
Hoy ya lleva ocho años en su negocio. Más adelante le gustaría tener el capital suficiente para comprar un mototaxi y alquilarlo.
En su hogar se encarga de cubrir los gastos de alimento, mientras que su esposo cubre los demás gastos de la casa.
