Sonia Abigail
Sonia B. is married and has 4 children who attend a school near to her house. Sonia created her business 2 years ago, selling used clothing, since her husband was out of work. As the months passed, her sales generated an income and provided her with the opportunity to purchase pacas (American clothing) wholesale. She distributes it to neighbourhoods near to where she lives. This has generated greater demand than she can satisfy, so Sonia is requesting a loan from FAPE and Kiva in order to buy 14 more pacas, as each costs Q. 1,000.00.
Her greatest dream is to see her family together forever, and for her children to have a better future.
