A loan of $700 helped to invest in upgrading her restaurant and to purchase necessary products such as "quintales" (100 lbs.) of rice, potatoes and oils.

Verónica Alexandra's story

Verónica is a young person with great courage to face challenges. She defines herself as a humble, honest and determined person who loves her only daughter who is 11 years old. She works with her sister, a young girl, who appears in the snapshot. Together they look for the way to get ahead and to improve their quality of life.

The loan requested from Fodemi will be employed in the upgrading of the restaurant and in the purchase of products like rice, potatoes and oil that are necessary for the preparation of breakfast, lunch and snacks that Verónica offers her customers.

Verónica’s dream is to have a much larger restaurant with industrial kitchens. She is conscious that to fulfill her dream is possible but in order to do so she has to work day by day. The motivation for fulfilling this dream is seeing her daughter grow up.
