Sonia's story

Sonia was born in the city of Paucartambo (Cusco, Peru) and is 46 years old. Currently, Sonia lives in the city of Cusco together with her only child. Sonia's main activity is selling breakfast, mate [tea], hot and cold drinks, and other items. She has a small cafe where she sells her products. She has operated this business for 5 years, and it is going very well for her, thanks to the dedication she puts into her work. At this time, Sonia needs a loan to buy sugar, bread, cakes and other items.

The borrower is a responsible and hard-working person, and thanks to these qualities, her fellow members invited her to participate in the “Mosoq Allpa” communal bank of the Arariwa Association.
