Veronica Alexandra's story

The city of Puyo is located at 924 meters above sea level in the western part of the province of Pastaza. It is the capital of this province. Demographically speaking, the city is small, but it has a great variety of sites that attract local and international tourists - most popular of all are ecotourism activities and extreme sports. This city is growing economically every day through commerce and the industries of livestock, agriculture and tourism.

Verónica, who is 29 years old, lives in this city. She is married to Darwin, who works for a private company. Together they have the pleasure of raising two children. She has overcome several obstacles which did not allow her to finish her university course. Nevertheless, with the support of her parents she has once again resumed her studies.

Nine years ago she trained as a beautician and started her own business selling cosmetics. Currently she is seeking a loan in order to buy products to stock her business. Her income will improve considerably, which will allow her to cover her educational expenses and also help with the household expenses and help her provide a better life for her children.
