Norma Juliana's story

Norma, 48, lives in Primavera de Duran (an urban outskirt that was originally irregular with several hills, streams and lagoons that still persist as remains of ecology in dissolution). Her husband is a Security Guard and they have three children who attend public schools.

She started her activity a few years ago. She had two unused freezers so she started to make home-made bolos (frozen fruit treats) using a little capital she had. This is how she started out as a merchant.

She wants to use the loan to fix up her house. She will buy cement, sand and stone in order to have a better life with her family and more room for her business.
