Veronica De Los Angeles
Verónica is 27 years old. She has a grocery store. Despite being so young she has vast experience in her business. She’s been in business over two years because she had no source of income because her parents did not have enough resources. They taught her how to work from a very early age. This is how she went into this business.

She is an unassuming, respectful person who tries to improve her income every day. The money she’s requesting will be used as working capital to buy snacks, detergent, soap, basic grains, bread and milk, among other products. Her wish is to stay in business since it’s her only source of livelihood.
