Sonia's Group's story

SONIA'S GROUP is made up of five responsible and hard-working women who want their families to do well. The group leader is Sonia. She was chosen because she is a woman with great aspirations, and is sociable, kind, and friendly. Sonia is 28 and lives in Salcedo with her husband and three children. Sonia works alone, raising white pigs for fattening and later sale. This is the first time that she has requested a loan from Fodemi. She will invest it in the purchase of young white pigs for raising and fattening. This will generate her more sales and a better income, which will allow her to support her family and give her children an education. Her dream is to be able to have a large pig farm, and for her children to be professionals. The other group members are farmers. This loan will help them to buy seeds and fertilizer so that they have an excellent harvest and are able to make a good income, thus improving their quality of life.

In this group: Sonia Amparo, Elvia Mariana Piedad, Rosa Matilde, Beatríz Matilde, Daniela Maritza
