Verónica Lisette's story

Verónica, a young woman, is a member of the communal bank "Pauteñitas." She lives in a beautiful community located in the Paute canton, a place with a warm climate and a fertile soil where the most beautiful flowers grow. The region’s uneven geography provides beautiful landscapes that make it easy to enjoy nature. Locals are kind and humble, and preserve their culture and traditions.

Verónica is eighteen years old, single and lives with her parents. Her father works in the construction sector and as a security guard; her mother has a restaurant. They do not own the house they live in, which is located in a farm they take care of.

Verónica is studying her last year at school and she is doing very well. At home, she helps her parents take care of the farm and during the weekends she helps her mother to cook and serve at the restaurant.

She will use this loan to buy supplies for her mother’s restaurant and also to pay for the university’s tuition fee. Her goal is to become a professional.
