A loan of $225 helped to pay for the books she needs to study for her courses.


Sonia's story

Sonya dreams of working in financial management. In addition to attending school full time, she works 30 hours a week to afford her tuition and her daughter’s expenses. Sonya earns about $4 a day and pools her income with her father, who works as a cashier at a local shop. Together they earn around $9 a day for their family.

With the money from her loan, Sonya plans on purchasing vital textbooks that will help her complete her final years of school. She has made it this far without books, but in order to complete her thesis and earn the high grades she aspires to, she needs materials. With a degree in hand and skills that can help her in the professional workforce Sonya expects to earn $14 a day in her future. This increase would not only change her life but that of her daughter’s as well.
