Norma Victoria
Norma is a member of the Ccatun Saccha communal bank. She is 47 years old and has 6 children. She sews aprons, blouses, fustanes [skirts], and centros [short dresses made of flannel typically worn by indigenous women]. She sells her wares in the Ayacucho, Huanta, Sachabamba, Matará, and Seccelambras markets. She learned how to sew as a child with her mother. Her husband is also a tailor and together they opened a tailor's shop where they make uniforms, three-piece suits, aprons, blouses, and fustanes.

The money from the loan she is requesting will be used to buy fabric, organza, lace and thread.

Working with Finca has changed her life, because her business has grown so much. What she likes most about her communal bank is that she can save money and access credit. She has also learned a lot in the family, marriage, and domestic violence trainings.

Her biggest dreams are that her business grows and her children become business professionals.
