Erma's story

Erma C. feels blessed in having her own business as a blacksmith making knives and other metal goods. Despite the limited opportunities she has had, the business makes enough profit to combat poverty and provide her family with its main source of income. To increase their income, Erma is requesting a loan to grow her business in partnership with her loving and very supportive husband. Once she has enough capital she plans to employ people to work with them and to expand the business into other areas of the province.
