Sonia Iris
Sonia, 28, studied up to eighth grade. She's married and her husband works in security. She has two children, ages 5 and 3. Only her family lives in her house and only her children are dependent on her.

She has been a merchant for four years. Her husband inspired her to set up the store and they learned it on their own. Previously she did domestic work but now she works at home. Her husband helps her when he can. She stays at home all day making sales.

The loan she's requesting is to buy gas to sell in her store. Nobody distributes gas in her area, so she has an extra income.

Her goal is to strengthen and stock the store so it's the strongest in the area. She also wants to give her children the best. She plans to expand her store little by little with her profits.
