Rosa Amalia's story
Rosa is a very persevering woman with a great passion for her profession. Thanks to her sales of chickens and eggs she has been able to overcome great adversity in life, such as separating from her husband and being left alone with her three children (now 22, 14, and 18 years old). Her big pride is knowing that her hens and chickens helped her raise her children. She has a big problem, though, which is that every business goes through hard times, and because she's a head of household who's responsible for all the expenses, she preferred feeding her children to investing in her business. She's requesting a loan to buy 200 baby chicks to raise and concentrated feed to feed them. She dreams of having a very productive company to keep on supporting her children unconditionally and having a peaceful old age.
