A loan of $300 helped to buy mangoes, pineapples, papayas and cucumbers.

Sonia Marcela's story

Sonia lives with her mother and her son. She’s single and for the last twelve years has been selling peeled fruit. She works in her fruit business from Monday to Sunday; she learned it from her mother a long time ago.

She wants to expand sales but needs to buy more fruit and does not have enough money to do so which is why she’s requesting a loan to buy mangoes, pineapples, papayas and cucumbers. She will also buy a metal grate to seal her business and remodel it.

The loan will help her business grow and to help her mother with increased profits and to be able to diversify the products she sells so that she can acquire many more customers. It will also help her have a better quality of life.
