Nora
Nora is 47 years old. She lives with her husband, Rolando. Their children live in another city. She and her husband live in their own house located in a rural district.

Nora is a woman of principles and good values. She makes handcrafted knitted items, which she sells in a stand located in the center of her district. At the same time, she sells crafts, tapestries, ceramics, decorations for the home, etc. In this way her customers are attracted by the new items.

"I have been working in knitting for almost 10 years, and I like it because I can create new styles," she assures.

Her sales depend on her persistence in offering her products, and so she is at her sales stand for the greater part of the day. Her husband works in a mine, so for that reason she passes the greater part of her time with her fellow vendors at the city location where she has her sales stand.

She needs your support to acquire merchandise such as wools and threads. She belongs to the communal bank "Mujeres al Futuro" (Women for the Future), and this is her 9th loan with MFP. She hopes for your support to continue with her goals. On her part, she cooperates punctually with her communal bank. Nora will invest the 500 PEN in purchasing sheep and alpaca wool for her next knitting projects.
