Rosa Luz Paola
Rosa made leather products for a company when she had just finished middle school for a year and a half, but due to personal problems she had to leave the job.

At present she sells clothes for babies and children by order or she visits her clients at home. Before, she used to have the help of a relative who had a stand in the local market and he was offering Rosa's products. At present she only sells the clothes on her own; she has had this business for 5 years.

She also works as a cashier at a discotheque at the nights just like her sister. She tells us that this work help her to cover the extra expenses at home.

Being single and 25 years old she plans to open a stand in the local market to be able to make her business grow and to sell more clothes.
