Las Palomitas Group's story

The "Little Doves" community bank is comprised by seven individuals who are very responsible and willing to continue working. Norma is originally from Cerro de Pasco but she arrived in Lima at a young age to get ahead. She is currently 38 years old. In her family there's herself, her husband and their 4 children.

Norma sells beauty products. She has been in this line of business for over a year. She started when a friend encouraged her to start her own business. She also explains that she sells items on demand, based on the orders placed by friends and family. The business has helped her achieve financial stability for her home and enabled her to continue to support the education of her two youngest children.

Norma's goal is to buy her own home, as she's living under her mother-in-law's roof at the moment. With the requested loan she invest in the purchase of beauty products such as talcum powder, perfumes, lotions and colognes. The "Little Doves" community bank is grateful for the loan an is committed to keeping up the hard work. Paulina wasn't able to attend due to work reasons.
