Norma Elizabeth
Norma is a member of the San Juan cooperative bank, 42 years old, and lives in her parents’ house with her husband. She is a primary school teacher and has three children ages 14, 13 and 4 who are in public school. Norma enjoys making handcrafted items, having started out two years ago making decorations from tulip wood. She sells these at schools to the teachers, and she also makes wood veneer doors such as those for kitchen confectioners, wardrobes, etc. Her business is run out of her house, and she also dedicates herself to selling Unique brand beauty products by catalog.

She has had some difficult times, particularly when she was hit by a car which injured her right arm and forced her to be on bed rest for fifteen days. She was not able to work during this time.

Norma requests a loan from Finca of 1,200.00 Peruvian soles, with which she will purchase materials for making her doors and decorations. She is glad to be receiving orientations on how to best run her enterprise. Her dreams are to own her own home, to have a bookstore/bazaar, and to become a director of Unique brand product sales.
