Sonia has been working with the Manuela Ramos Movement for 1 year. She first received a 500 PEN loan, which she used to increase working capital for her artisan business.

She is requesting a new 1000 PEN loan to buy materials for her business.

Her dream is to open a company selling artisan goods.
