Norma B. is already 46 years old. She is married to Andres, and they are currently residing in Barangay Linao Norte of Tuguegarao City. She has 6 children, namely, Jenilyn, Joverlyn, Jodel, Jhon, Vergel, and Jose. Their children are all studying; thus Norma is working very hard to help her husband support their children’s education, for them to have a bright future.

Norma is selling fruits and vegetables in their village. She manages a vending stall, but, unluckily, she is lacking financial capital. That is why she is requesting from Kiva lenders an amount of 11,000 PHP as additional working capital. She is thankful that her children are very understanding and helpful.
