Sonia's work consists of selling clothing, shoes, and lingerie. She carries out her business selling on credit among her friends, neighbors, and family members, from whom she collects on a weekly or monthly basis. In general, all the products she sells are by specific orders from her customers. She has been in this business for more than 22 years. It has gone well for her so far, and she has the support of her partner and her two daughters. When she began this business, she was full of doubts and insecurities, but she has always been of strong and determined character. Nevertheless, she learned little by little, and now she has become an excellent businesswoman. She likes her work because she can generate her own source of income, in addition because she shares this work with her partner, and because she also has the necessary time to fulfill her responsibilities as a homemaker. She has many plans for the future. Among them, she wants to establish a shop where she can appropriately display everything that she offers for sale and serve her customers in a more comfortable way. This is her 18th loan from MFP, and so she is grateful to all those who make her loan possible so that she can continue with her goals. On her part, she promises to make her loan payments in a punctual manner. She is very happy to belong to her communal bank, since all its members are very friendly and united.

With the 1000 PEN that she has applied for, she will buy articles of clothing, sandals, and women's lingerie of various styles and of good quality.
