Sonia's story

Sonia is a married woman and a resident of Concepcion, Iloilo. Like others in her community, she and her husband earn a living by fishing.

Sonia also runs a sari-sari (variety) store and a hog-raising business. She is asking for a loan to buy grocery items, such as powdered drinks, canned goods, noodles, snack food, toiletries, food seasonings, and other basic commodities. This loan will help Sonia improve her store and reach her goal. A part of this loan also will be used to buy fishing net and piglets.

Sonia and her husband have six children, one adult and five dependents. Her dream is for them to finish their studies.
