Sonia Maribel's story

Sonia Maribel is in a civil union and has three young children with her partner. All of her children are in school and her partner is a fisherman. Their family resides in Jaramijo, a beautiful port city popular with tourists. The majority of Jaramijo's residents work in fishing, and the city has been severely affected by the global health crisis caused by COVID-19.

Sonia Maribel is a very hardworking woman who supports her partner in providing a good education for their children. Three years ago, she started running a home-based business selling drinks, sodas, and juices as well as snacks. However, due to the economic fallout of the pandemic, her sales have fallen significantly. With this loan, Sonia Maribel hopes to reopen her business and continue working to earn an income. The loan will allow her to buy products like juices and soft drinks for her inventory. Sonia Maribel's dream is to own her own house and find a location for her business.
