Veronica Albertina
Veronica, who is 35 years old, is from Puerto Limón, a little city with a humid climate located in Santo Domingo, Ecuador. She is single and has a four-year-old son who is in school. Veronica sells cosmetic products and also has a grocery store, businesses that she runs to take advantage of the passage of tourists through this area, since the city has become a big commercial axis because it connects the coastal and mountain regions of the country.

Veronica works from sun-up until dark every day in her little store, but her income is not sufficient. For this reason, she applied to Fundación Alternativa for a loan to be able to begin a new business that she will run in parallel with her sales activities. Her idea is to buy pigs and raise them to sell and to increase her earnings. Veronica is a hard-working woman, and she thinks that with the hard work that she exerts it will be a basis for her growth and thus little by little she will achieve one of her dreams of buying a little house in which her son can grow and develop in the best way.
