A loan of $500 helped vehicle repair in order to make sales.

Sonia Del Carmen's story

Sonia, 23 years old, lives in San Miguel city with her 38 year old husband Mateo, her four children Graciela, Alejandro, Alexander, and Alonso. Since they married they have sold fruit and vegetables in nearby villages, traveling all over the western region in their vehicle. In this way they are able to sell their vegetables and provide a home for their children.

At the moment the vehicle they use to make their sales is in need of repair so they are seeking a loan to take it to the mechanic so it can be repaired. With this help they will be able to depend on a vehicle in good condition to continue their daily routine to different villages they visit, avoiding possible accidents.

Her goal is to continue gaining customers and have a prosperous business in order to have economic stability for her family.
