Norma is a happy worker running a warehouse covering a large territory in her community. At the root of her financial problems is that her business failed and had to close it down temporarily. Nevertheless she has not lost hope of restarting her warehouse and making ti the best in her community once again. Due to the lack of capital funds to restock her small warehouse, fo now she works as a farm laborer and sells a few consumer items that she has in her warehouse, just so that her little ones may not have to leave school. With this wish in mind she requests your noble and generous help from her heart, in the form of a sum of money as a loan with the intention to invest it in the purchase of better and larger quantities of products. With these she will once again win the place she once had in her community and by these means help raise her family's standard of living. Only with your help this will be possible.
