Sonia Violeta's story

Sonia is a member of the United Friends village bank. She is 52 years-old, married, and has two children who are 22 and 21 years old and live with her. The eldest child works while the youngest studies at university.

Sonia has a food stand in the market that was an inheritance from her mother-in-law. Sonia and her husband both work there serving breakfasts, lunches, and dinners everyday until 7 p.m.

Since joining FINCA, Sonia’s business has improved and her sales have grown, which has allowed her to buy even more merchandise. She needs a loan of 2,600 soles to buy rice, sugar, meat, and beans. Her dream is to move her restaurant to a bigger location.
