Sonia's story

Sonia is a member of the Generosidad (“Generosity”) Village Bank. She is 43 years old and is married with four children. Sonia is involved in several businesses and works, depending on market demand, in different areas. She travels to regional villages and buys vegetables and grains from local producers. She resells her wares at the Abastos Market in the city of Ayacucho. She also has a market stall in the city of Huanta.

Sonia also produces firewood: she buys the trees from villagers and transports the wood to the city of Lima. Sonia needs a loan of 3000 soles to buy vegetables. Sonia dreams that her children will graduate with professional degrees, of having her own investment capital, and of building her own home.
