Rose has been selling beans and hens for 8 years. This is her second loan from Turame. With this Kiva loan, she will increase her capital so that she can buy a large quantity of beans and a lot of hens to re-sell. This will make her more money.

In the near future, Rose would like to buy a plot of land.
