Sonia Marisol's story

Sonia Marisol Perez D. R. is 37 years old. She has lived in Zacatecoluca (department of La Paz) for 14 years, the same period she has had her business in the same place. Sonia lives with her husband, who has his own business selling scrap metal. In his spare time he helps Sonia with her business. She also lives with her two small children, 5 and 7 years old, who are in school. She has a store, located in her home, and she sells basic goods, such as food and household products. Sonia is requesting a loan in order to stock her store, buying more bread, milk, juices, and other products, whatever is most in demand. She expects to improve her sales this way. Sonia is a hard-working woman who wishes to improve her business and thus enjoy greater stability, offering a better future for her two small children, one where they have what they need to live better.
