Sonia's story

Sonia belongs to the Yana Nahui community bank. She is 31-years old and partnered with 3 children, 12-, 7- and 2-years old, respectively. Sonia operates a business selling cheeses in Soquiaccato. She is applying for a S/.900 loan to buy more cheese to stock her business and increase her income. Sonia very much likes her meetings with the community bank because she has learned from others there how better to work and save. She has also learned about the rights of women. Sonia's dream is for her business to grow and to buy a small bit of land where she can live with her family.
