A loan of $1,125 helped to buy summer merchandise.

Veronica Saida's story

Verónica is a woman who earns her livelihood selling groceries. This allows her to watch over and care for her two small children who are 3 and 14 years old. This constant support and determination have allowed her to get ahead alone. She is currently separated from her husband due to personal differences. This small, humble family lives in the city of Camaná located in the south of the country and noted for the delicious seafood it produces. As proof of this, Verónica deems “Chupe de Camarones” to be the best one of all and that’s why she chose it as her favorite dish.

She would have liked to study accounting as a professional career but because of lack of money and for other reasons she wasn’t able to have this career. However, this did not deter her and she decided to open a business to earn the necessary income to support her family. She works hard all day on average 13 hours and in all that accumulated time is able to earn up to 120 soles which she can use to cover daily expenses and to save a bit of money to buy more merchandise.

Verónica needs help because she does not have strong capital to be able to buy summer merchandise at a lower price to earn a larger profit margin. With this new and constant income she has set a goal for herself of buying a freezer and in time with much effort and dedication she’ll be able to buy a piece of land to build her own house on.
