Veronica Guadalupe's story

Verónica currently lives with her family, which is made up of herself, her husband and four children. Her children are twelve, ten, eight and four years old. They all go to school and are financially dependent on Verónica. She does not have any relatives living abroad.

Verónica's business is selling clothing. Additionally, she sells shoes. She learned the trade from her family, and she has worked independently for about eighteen years. Verónica works from Monday to Sunday from 6:00 am. to 6:00 pm.

She is requesting a loan so she can purchase skirts, pants, shirts and other garments. She will also invest in purchasing shoes. The investment will be a help to her so she can expand the types of merchandise she has in her inventory. With the investment, her business will grow, as will her sales and her income.

Verónica's greatest hope for the future is to be able to buy a house and improve her whole family's standard of living.
