Sofia's story

Sofía is from the community of Emiliano Zapata. She is divorced and has four children. All of them are already married and they are her pride and joy. She buys and sells plastic dishes such as bowls, plates, glasses, and cups, among others. She also needs the loan for support in the purchase of ingredients such as flour, eggs, oil, and cheese, among others. With the rest of the loan, she is going to buy more dishes. That is how she will work with the loan she has asked for.

What motivated her to do this activity was her family, since in order to get ahead, she had to look for a way to pay her daily expenses raising her children. She has been with them for 32 years and it has gone well for her.

Her only wish is to continue to be supported with the loan in order to keep working as long as God gives her life.
