Lidia Sonia's story

Lidia is a member of the Llamkasum village bank. She is 39 years old, married, and the mother of five children (three girls and two boys). She has been a member of FINCA Perú for three years and owns a shop where she sells clothing and makes sweaters. She tells us that the biggest lesson she's learned over the years is the importance of saving and punctuality. Her dream is to develop her sweater-making business, and eventually she'd like to have a chain of stores where she can sell her products. She will invest the requested loan in buying more clothing, thread, and fabric to sell in her shop.
