Rosa Maria's story
Rosa is 52 years old and she is married. She and her husband work together, and their son Byron, who is 18, helps them with their small business. They sell tripe stew and fish stew. They began the business 8 years ago, and Rosa works constantly so that their family never lacks its daily bread. She needs money to purchase silverware and pans, since those she has now are deteriorated from use. This way she will be able to present a better image to her customers, thereby earning a greater income and being able to satisfy her family's basic needs.
