Veronica's story

Verónica is 26 years old. This young woman lives with her husband and young son in the house of her in-laws. Their home is located near the town square of their district in the city of Tambogrande, which is part of the Department of Piura in northern Peru.

Her husband works in the field as a farmer. He also offers transportation services using his motorcycle taxi (a public transportation vehicle that consists of a motorcycle with an attached cabin for transporting people).

Verónica sells clothing and gifts for different events. In order to operate her business, she set up a store in the living room of her in-laws. They have supported her by providing space in their home for her business.

Verónica has many customers and enjoys the fact that many of them have remained loyal. Her business is well-known even though it has been in existence for only one year. She has a very good strategic location for making sales since her business is in the central part of town.

Verónica is a recognized client who has banked with Edpyme Alternativa, having repaid her first loan in a responsible manner. Now she is requesting a loan of 1400 PEN so that she can purchase more merchandise to restock her store. This will refresh her business and keep it in operation since she will have novelty gifts and clothes for the new season.

Verónica has an entrepreneurial spirit, so she wants to expand her inventory and grow her business. She wants to become a successful businesswoman and has many qualities that highlight her promptness and responsibility.
