Rosalina's story

Rosalina is very hard-working young person. She makes desserts such as jellies (jell-o), flans and yogurt cakes. She has been doing this for two and a half years. Rosalina has three children, two of whom are school age. She lives with her husband and children in Villa Litoral district which is thirty minutes from the city center.

Every day, Rosalina gets up very early in the morning and goes out to sell her desserts to stores and schools in neighboring districts. Rosalina's mother, Alina, helps her make her desserts and cakes and also has a good knowledge of how to prepare pastries such as empanadas and cheese rolls. Together with her mother, Rosalina would like to expand the business and increase her production and sale of pastries. For this reason, she would like to buy a 6 compartment oven and a kneading machine for dough.
