Duo Noveno San Pedro Group's story

A member of Duo Noveno San Pedro, Sonia Yanira lives in the canton of San Francisco in the town of Vista Hermosa, San Pedro Sacatepequez, together with her family. She is very happy for the help that they give her in everything. She is a very entrepreneurial woman. Her business is a store, but she has also accomplished another life goal, which is the sale of fried potatoes on the edge of the highway in the canton where she lives.

Since the workers always asked her if sold lunches, she was able to buy a cart and now she sells french fries and fried chicken. The ladies also ask for vegetables and so she also sells some vegetables.

The money isn't enough, so she sees the need to ask for another loan to be able to offer people what they ask for both in potatoes and in vegetables and in this way continue struggling for her dream, which is to continue prospering in every way.

In this group: Maria Del Carmen, Sonia Yanira
