Sonia Marilu
Sonia, 35, is married and has three children. She lives with her life partner, her three children, and her mother.

Every day for three years she has made a living selling soda, fried potatoes, and pupusas [stuffed tortillas]. She says she has been able to support it thanks to the help of her life partner.

The loan she's requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy more ingredients to make her food to sell, because this time of year there are a lot of tourists in the area and her sales double.

She hopes to build a small cafe on the shore of a lake with her profits.
