Veronica Yessenia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy thread, fabric, and lace to increase the production of textiles and increase sales.

Veronica Yessenia's story

Veronica is a 33-year-old, hard-working woman. She lives with her two children in the neighborhood of Ispacas, which is in Chuquibamba. She has been running an embroidery business for the past nine years in order to cover her household expenses. She learned this skill from her parents when she was very young and it's a job she does very well.

She is asking for this microloan to buy thread, fabric, and lace so that she can increase her textile production and increase her sales. Veronica hopes to have her own business in the future to be able to take care of her family in a dignified way, seeking to improve her quality of life and her education.
