Sonia Marleny's story

Sonia is 33 years old and studied up to Grade 6. For economic reasons she could not continue her studies. She is married and her husband works on public transport buses. She has two children, a daughter who is in Grade 4 and a son who went abroad 3 years ago.

Sonia works caring for domestic animals and also has had a store for 8 years. She started it as it is a way she could make money not neglecting her household work. Before she had this business she worked in agriculture with her husband. Sonia cares for her store during the day and her daughter helps her when she is finished with her studies.

The loan she is requesting from CREDICAMPO is to buy rice, beans, sugar, salt, matches, propane gas, sausages, soft drinks, biscuits, bread, sweets, etc. to sell in her store. She has a lot of demand for these products as it is the only store in her neighborhood and she needs to buy enough merchandise to cover the demand in her community and to provide better service to her clients.

She hopes to have a good business in the future which would allow her more income and at the same time satisfy the needs of the customers with the products she offers. She wants for the future to necessary income to support her daughter in her studies so she can realize her dream of becoming a professional.
