A loan of $1,100 helped to finish paying for her business and to buy stock.

Verónica's story

Verónica, age 26, is the single mother of a three year old. Because she separated from her husband, she needed to take on the household responsibilities. Therefore, she started working as a salesperson in her sister’s store.

However, because her sister had to move to the city of Medellín, she offered to sell her business to Verónica. She accepted, and she is now the owner. She has had the business for five months, and she affirms that the sales are good. This has driven her to request a loan in order to finish paying her sister and to invest in stock.

She dreams of seeing her business grow and of selling not only underwear and accessories. She dreams of introducing new lines of products.
