Veronica Patricia's story

Veronica Patricia is 41 years old. She is married and has four daughters, ages 24, 22, 20, and 17. The youngest one goes to school. Her husband is a security guard. They live in the city of Manta, a place with beautiful beaches and a very diverse cuisine that attracts tourists.

She is a great mother, who earns a living with her business of selling clothing. But this is not sufficient to cover certain urgent expenses. That is why she is arranging this loan. Her youngest child is finishing the final years of school, and she needs a computer that will allow her to complete the assignments and research they give her so that she can graduate.

This loan is for purchasing a computer. Her dream is that her child becomes a professional.
