A loan of $1,175 helped to buy clothing for resale.

Sonia's story

Sonia is 30 years old and lives with her husband, 31 year old Richard. They have one nine year old daughter, Sheyla, who has completed their happiness and to whom they have dedicated the fruits of their labor. They live in a solidly built home.

She began selling clothing, having been motivated by her parents, who did this all of her life.

Between she and Richard, they have 11 years in this business and they go to a local fair on the weekends to sell their products.

She likes her business very much because she considers it to be simple in comparison to other businesses and because she can do it without leaving her family’s side.

She plans to increase her stock of merchandise in order to take advantage of the end of the year season, when clothing sales in the zone increase considerably and there are good profits.

She wants to continue working with the same motivation in the future so that she can improve her shop and turn it into an integral clothing store for all ages. She also wants to sell shoes.

She will use the money from this loan of 3,000 PEN to buy clothing for women and children, including blouses, polo shirts, pants and shirts.
