Norma's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a sewing machine to make traditional clothes to make an income as a single parent.

Norma's story

Norma began her sewing journey with her mother's guidance. What distinguishes her is the sewing of traditional clothes. She found that there is a large market for these dresses among women. She is a single mum and her work is her only source of income. A loan will help her buy a new sewing machine. Her dream is to open a workshop in the future.
