Verano Group's story

Rosa Ines is 32 years old and is married to David, who is a state police officer. They have 3 children: Andrés, the oldest, is 13 years old and is in his second year of secondary school; Laura is 6 and is in her first year of primary school; and the youngest is barely a year old.

Rosa works as a merchant. She has a small business in her house where she sells sweets as well as groceries such as cooking oil, soap, pasta, chili peppers, and canned beans. Rosa has put considerable effort, dedication, and responsibility into her work, and she wants to use her next loan to make her business bigger. That is her goal for the next few months and she thinks she will be successful.
