Rosa Esther
Rosa is 19 years old. She is in a relationship and has a son. Currently, she makes and sells tortillas in her house. In this way, she contributes to covering the household expenses. She learned to make tortillas from the time she was a girl because in her house they always worked in agriculture and had to make tortillas for food at home and many other things since they had the corn.

The loan that she is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy a motorcycle, because she and her partner plan to open a hot dog stand in the town market. With the motorcycle, they will tow the hot dog cart from the market to the house, because it is far from the market for them to carry it by pushing it. They need the money because their income is not sufficient to buy the motorcycle.

Her desire is to make her business bigger and establish more hot dog stands or carts in the town or places near the town.
