Veronica Cristina
Veronica is 19 years old and she lives in Libertad, a tourist area of Ecuador known for its beaches and gastronomy. Though she is young, she is an enterprising and hardworking woman. Part of her motivation is her son, who is only one year old. Upon becoming a single mother so young, she sought out a way to get ahead and be able to offer her son a future. This is how, with the capital she was able to put together, she began selling baseball caps and glasses on foot, covering different neighborhoods all day long. Little by little, thanks to the authorities, she was able to rent a stall to set up her business in the regenerated area of the city. This allowed her to raise her goal of getting ahead to fulfill her aims. She plans to use the loan she requested to buy purses, glasses, and baseball caps to have stock and be able to offer variety. Her dream for the future is to have a bigger business with an assistant so she can spend more time with her son.
