A loan of $800 helped to purchase clothing and shoes.


Sonia Eudina's story

Sonia is 50 years old, married, and has six children. She is a very kind, helpful, and cheerful person, and she has a small grocery store in her home. Fifteen years ago, she started off selling products such as sugar, rice, and other household items. She later stocked her business with other products, which her customers recommended that she sell. She started working on her own and over time she learned how to manage her business. About five years ago, she added the sale of clothing and school supplies to her business. Her schedule of operation starts at 6am and ends at 7pm.

Sonia is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of shoes, and different styles of clothing which are in fashion. With the support of this loan, she will be able to restock her business and continue to have a source of income so that she can help her husband support the family. Her goal is to maintain an active business and a happy family. Sonia has participated in six loan cycles with FAMA and demonstrated a good payment history with the loans she has received.
