A loan of $1,000 helped for display cases, notebooks, beverages.

Veronica Alexandra's story

Verónica, 30, because of the little income she had for her family, sold a piece of property years ago that she had in Suburbio to set up a small stationery shop in the front part of her house.

Living in a periurban zone characterized by its unpaved streets and deteriorating environment, she has managed to increase her stock in stationery items thanks to her good administration. She has been in business for 7 years now. Her shop is next to a school and because of this her profits have been good. She sells notebooks for $1.50, pens for $0.30, markers and toys for the Christmas season. She is open for business from 6am until nightfall.

To stay in business she wants to use the loan to buy display cases, stationery supplies. In the future she’d like to finish building her house with cement because parts of it is still brick.
