Norma Elena
Norma Elena, age 42, only went to high school. She is married to Rolando, who works as bus operator in Palmar. She has four children, and two of them are married. The other two are 16 and 8 years old. They go to high school and elementary school in their community.

She tells us that in order to help her husband, 12 years ago she started selling women’s and men’s clothes door to door to her friends and neighbors in her community. Little by little her business was growing. She started selling in other communities like Agustin, Tetela, and Cosolapa.

She makes new customers every day, and some years ago she started to also sell a small amount of costume jewelry (accessories for women). She says that thanks to God she has been selling very well.

She needs the loan to buy blouses, shirts, shorts, underwear, pants, socks, bracelets, earrings, and handbags to sell later.

She hopes that her business grows more every day. This is because she wishes to give her children a better quality of life and to gradually build a small place to sell her products in the future.
