Sonia's story

Sonia is from the Ciudad del Este. She is single and still lives with her parents. She has a small business where she recharges telephone lines, makes photocopies, and sells some basic needs items like noodles, rice, sugar, baked goods, and more.

She tells us that she succeeded in setting up her business with a small loan that the Fundación had granted her. She made the capital work, and the business was growing. She has now increased her personal income, and this is how she also helps her parents with the household expenses.

She is a very tenacious and honest person. She is known and cherished by the people who live in this neighborhood. Her goal is to be able to continue growning.

In light of this dream, she is requesting a loan to buy staple items like noodles, sugar, herbs, baked goods, and more. She is grateful for the opportunity that is being given to her.
