Sonia
Sonia, age 21, lives with her mother, Felicitas, and her sister, Carmen. Her main business activity, which she does thanks to having two cows that provide the needed milk, is making cheese, butter, and yogurt. She packages them and sells them at a market in the city. She has had this business for six months, and it is going very well for her. It is going so well that she cannot stock up with her own production. Therefore, she has to buy dairy products from other people.

She now wishes to save all of the money she needs. She plans to study for an advanced career next year. This way she will be an example for her younger sister.

This is her third loan with MFP. She is sure that with this financial support she will be able to continue with her objectives. She pledges, once more, to make her payments. It pleases her to be part of her communal bank because all of the members are responsible and supportive people.

Sonia will use the requested money to buy a machine to package her daily products. Up until now she has been doing it by hand.

Sonia tiene 21 años, vive con su madre, Felicitas, y su hermana Carmen.
Su principal actividad económica la realiza gracias a que tiene dos vacas que le brindan la leche necesaria para la elaboración de queso, mantequilla y yogurt, los cuales envasa para comercializarlos en el mercado de la ciudad. Recién tiene 6 meses en este negocio, le está yendo muy bien, tanto que no se abastece con su propia producción por lo que tiene que comprar productos lácteos de otras personas. Ahora desea ahorrar todo el dinero necesario, pues tiene planeando estudiar una carrera superior el próximo año y de esa manera ser un ejemplo para su hermana menor.

Este es su tercer crédito con MFP y está segura que con este apoyo financiero podrá continuar con sus objetivos. Promete, una vez más, cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas y además le agrada ser parte de su asociación porque todos sus integrantes son personas responsables y solidarias.
Sonia invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de una máquina para envasar sus productos lácteos, ya que hasta ahora lo hace de forma artesanal.
