Unidas Triunfaremos Group's story

44 year old Sonia is a single mother and has 4 children. Thanks to her work, she has been able to bring up her children and give them the best. 28 years ago, Sonia's parents left her their news and candy stand. She worked there before this and they taught her everything about the business which she has turned into the source of livelihood for her family. In her kiosk, she sells all sorts of newspapers, magazines, and periodicals and also all types of candy and soda. Because she has been working in the same place for a long time, she is very well known and she has many customers. Thanks to her business, she has been able to buy all types of household appliances and to give her children a good education. What she wants most its to buy some land to build a house and put a store there. She will use her loan to buy magazines and periodicals to offer a greater variety to her customers. She is the newest member of the loan group "Unidas Triunfaremos" (Together We Triumph). One of the other members invited her to participate and be part of the group.
