Veronica's story

Veronica is a 47-year-old married woman with 5 children aged between 11 and 22 years old. Veronica's husband works as a fisherman and farm laborer.

Veronica has had a sari-sari store for 8 years. She sells items like shampoo, soap, canned goods, coffee, and sugar. Veronica also prepares food items like pancakes and banana cue (fried bananas), which she sells to people in her neighborhood. Veronica works hard to send her children to school. She has requested a loan to buy more items to sell such as snacks, canned goods, and toiletries. Veronica hopes this loan will help her to improve her sari-sari store business.
