A loan helped to buy dog food to sell.


Sonia's story

Sonia is 45 years old. She has been married for a long time, and is mother to two children who are young people now.

Sonia owns the house where she lives with her husband. She put in a lot of effort to buy the house.

Sonia has a business where she sells dog food and small pets, such as birds, tortoises, rodents, and more. Sonia wants a loan in order to buy merchandise. She has discovered that it is good business to buy food for big dogs because she can then increase sales. However, carrying the merchandise is hard work. Sonia is sure that she will in the future be able to hire somebody to help with this task. Her husband helps but it is always necessary to have an employee.

Sonia hopes that you can help her because her business is stable and there are always people who have pets to feed.
