Aurora is the member who is below the poverty line, but she is fighting tirelessly to be able to grow. She is a person who perseveres and she really wants to get ahead. She makes all kinds of cakes and says she always has good orders and her customers are very happy with her work. Her goal is to keep fighting, since she wants to improve her income and thus help her family.
