Rosa's story

Rosa has been making a living by selling cosmetics for the past 8 years. She started selling the products of only one brand, but little by little, she has been able to start selling the cosmetics of three different brands. She also offers a cleaning service in a dental office. With this side job she was able to work and help out with the household expenses.

Rosa is the mother of two girls, who are her motivation to work. Now that they are grown, Rosa and her husband live alone. She shares her earnings with her husband so that all of the household expenses with be covered. Together with some friends, Rosa is considering the possibility of starting a business of making clothing in a few years.
