Norma Isabel
Norma is married and she has five children, the oldest of whom is 38 and the youngest 23. Her husband is an employee at a company, and with five children the household expense is very high and her husband's salary is insufficient. For that reason, she looked for work, but nobody hired her, so she decided to open her own business in her home with a minimal investment, taking advantage of the family's experience because her relatives knew the business. Little by little her business has been improving, and she has been able to help with the economic sustenance of the family. They have been able to continue little by little educating their children and offering them the necessities like food and clothing.

At present, Norma is requesting a loan for the amount of $750 for the purchase of equipment for her business, and also for working capital. She will repay the loan over a period of 6 to 12 months. This will help her to offer better service to her customers, to have more stock, and to offer a variety of products that are much in demand in her business. She thanks you very much for the support you offer, which will help her get ahead and improve her quality of life.
