Sofia's story

Sofia, 60, lives in La Peña, Tecolostote-San Lorenzo, with her family, which is made up of her husband and four children, who are 16, 19 and 21 years old; all are students and help with household chores.

She has been a vegetable farmer for over 20 years. She sells her product to earn income tu support her family.

She is asking for her first loan to make some home improvements, specifically to build walls that will be half wood and half block because the house is currently all wood and the humidity is damaging it. She hopes to make these improvement to offer better security to her family. Her family support her in this effort because they all work together to get ahead and improve family life.
