Sonia Marlene's story

Sonia lives with her family: her husband, who is 38 years old, and her children who are ages six, eight, and eighteen. They all work at their business every day and her husband works selling meat. Sonia works selling american clothing, which she has been doing for two years. She works every day and learned the business from a friend. Thankfully, the business has worked out to her satisfaction. The loan she is requesting will allow her to buy a variety of clothing merchandise, such as skirts, shirts, blouses, shorts, pants, and children's clothing. This investment will help her strengthen her business and satisfy her customers better. Her dream is for her children to stay in school and finish university. Her other aspiration is for her business to be profitable and grow financially.
