Norma's story

Norma is a member of the Awakening Communal Bank. She is 31 years old and lives with her partner and 3 children. Norma sells women, men and children's clothing. She began working in a clothing store in Lima. There she learned the business, and with a little capital she began to sell clothing as a street vendor. Norma traveled to Ayucucho for the Holy Week festival. Her daughter was born and she stayed in Ayacucho 9 years ago and almost at the same time she is in FINCA, and now she has a store in the Union Olarte Gallery. Norma likes the x that she receives in her Communal Bank because she can access her credit and savings accounts.

She is asking for a loan to invest in purchasing clothing articles to increase her available merchandise now that the Christmas season is approaching. Her dream is to be able to have her own commercial store and be able to see her children become professionals.
