A loan helped to buy rice, oil, sugar, flour, eggs, and other products to supply her store.


Norma Carolina's story

Norma is a young woman, 27 years old, who studied through her high school diploma. She's married and her spouse works in agriculture. At this time, they don't have children.

Norma is a homemaker. Previously she worked in catalog sales, but it didn't yield good results due to the competition in the area, and for this reason she wants to start a store in her house. She's sure this will be profitable.

The loan she's requesting is needed to buy rice, oil, sugar, flour, eggs, and other products for supplying her store.

Norma wants to have stability, wants her business to be profitable, and wants to be able to give her family at least the basic things needed for their well-being.
