Sonia
Sonia is 27 years old, and a single mother who lives with her son in her own house located in the town of Omaya in the district of Pichari. Sonia sells products that are basic necessities in her own store, which she has been doing for five years. She tells us that it wasn't very easy starting this business because she didn't have enough capital since she was working as a day laborer in agriculture, receiving minimum wage without being able to finance her son's education. It is for this reason that a brother of hers helped her get a loan which Sonia used to open her small general store. Little by little it grew, thanks to the dedication and meticulousness that she has. Currently Sonia has overcome this; her store is well supplied with products that are basic necessities so that her customers can always find everything. Going forward she is thinking of expanding her business. This is her first loan with MFP, which is why she has committed to settling her repayments punctually.
Sonia is happy to have a united community bank. With the 1,000 nuevos soles she will expand her merchandise.
