Vanessa Rocio's story

Vanessa lives in the city of La Libertad in the province of Santa Elena. She is 25 years old and the mother of one daughter who is six years old. Her daughter is enrolled at the local public school. For many years she has worked managing her own general store and in this has way she has always earned the money to support her family. One of her biggest problems right now is the violence in the area. Right now she is just returning to reopen the store. She has been fortunate enough to have good sales, but she's always looking for other ways to overcome financial difficulties. For this reason, Vanessa is requesting a loan in order to purchase a display case and to stock up on typical food basket items in order to better respond to customer demand. Her goal is to continue growing her store bigger and bigger and to be able to stock more products in order to offer a greater variety. Also, she hopes to be able to provide her daughter with a better quality of life.
