Veronica Del Carmen's story

Verónica is 36 years old, single and has 3 children between 10 and 24 years of age. She studied up until the ninth grade, owing to the fact that they did not have the economic conditions for her to continue studying. She is a single mother. Every day she gets up at 5 in the morning to make breakfast, send her children off to school and then work on her clothing sales. From a very young age she learned the clothing business with her mother. She sells in her community and in nearby cantons every day. The loan would be used to repair their home. In the rainy season the water leaks in, causing discomfort and illness for her family. In time, Verónica hopes to formalize her sales and have the business in her house. She wants to have a store of basic items and improve her quality of life.
