Sonia Alexandra's story

Sonia is 31 years old and enjoys working hard so her family can get ahead and she can help her husband cover household expenses.

She works alone as a merchant from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Her greatest difficulty is having to go buy the items she sells because where she does her shopping is far away from home.

She is married and has four children, ages 10, 9, 5 and 4 who are in school.

Her loan will be used to buy cement, sand and blocks to improve her business and house. Her goal is to finish building her house so the family has better living conditions.
