Norma
Norma, who is 51, is married to Ervin, with whom she has 3 children. Only one of the children, Lisbet, who is 5, lives with them and they raise and educate her in their own home which is situated in a village in the central rainforest. Norma is a remarkable woman. A year and a half ago she lost a large quantity of goods due to flooding, but managed to scrape together enough money not only to rebuild her home but also to reopen her drinks, foodstuffs and ready-meals business. "Selling fizzy drinks and beer is profitable, since the heat in this region is suffocating, particularly at weekends", she comments. But that is not the only service which Norma provides; she also sells pre-ordered meals, particularly breakfasts and lunches, to local teachers and workers. Her efforts have enabled her to provide a decent education for her children. Her ambitions are to increase her sales, which will mean investing in the purchase of merchandise to stock her stall. This is her 13th loan from MFP, so she is committed to make her repayments punctually. She says that she likes working with her communal bank, "Luz del futuro" (Light of the future), on account of the wholehearted support which she receives from her colleagues. She will use the loan to buy crates of beer, fizzy drinks and other foodstuffs to stock her shop and will also purchase supplies for the preparation of the food which she serves.

Norma de 51 años, está casada, con Ervin, con quien tiene 3 hijos, pero solo viven con uno de ellos: Lisbet, de 5 años, a la que educan y crían en su casa propia ubicada en una localidad de la selva central. Norma es una mujer como pocas. Hace 1 año y medio sufrió la pérdida de muchos bienes productos de una inundación. En éste tiempo consiguió juntar dinero y volver a levantar su hogar, así como abrir otra vez su negocio de bebidas, comestibles y comida.
“La venta de gaseosas y cervezas es rentable, por el sofocante calor de la zona y más aún los fines de semana”, comenta. Pero no solo a ello se dedica Norma; ya también brinda pensión alimentaria a docentes y trabajadores de su localidad. Los desayunos y almuerzos es lo que más vende.
Gracias a su esfuerzo puede brindarles a sus hijos una educación decente.
Sus metas enfocan en aumentar sus ventas, para ello deberá invertir en la compra de mercadería para surtir su puesto de ventas. Éste es su crédito número 13 con MFP, por eso se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de sus cuotas. Comenta que el agrada trabajar con su banco comunal “Luz del futuro” por el apoyo desinteresado que obtiene de sus compañeros.
De obtener el crédito, comprará cajas de cervezas, gaseosas y otros comestibles, para surtir su negocio, así como insumos para preparar los alimentos que ofrece.
