Sonia, 49, lives in an urban zone called “Las Orquídeas” so called because when it was discovered there were a lot of orchids there. Her main activity is clothing sales.
Because of a lack of employment opportunities she started selling children’s clothes to her neighbors and acquaintances. Gradually she acquired clientele that helped her meet family expenses. She sells blouses for $8.00, pants for $15.00 and shorts for $6.00.
She wants to continue to help meet family expenses so she wants to use the loan to buy clothes and shoes. In the future she’d like to have a clothing boutique.
