Florencia Sonia's story

Sonia is 41 years old, married, and has three children who are 15, 12 and 6 years old. Her business is selling hats and shawls for ladies who dress in traditional clothing. Her store is located in Ovejuyo district. This loan is Sonia's eighth. She is a long-standing client of the institution.

Sonia will use her loan to buy hats and shawls for her business because right now the neighborhood anniversary is approaching and she makes lots of sales at this time of year. Her reason for requesting this loan is so that she can increase her working capital. Sonia faces challenges in her business. One challenge is stocking up with merchandise. Sonia will use her profits to continue buying her products wholesale.
