Norma Alicia's story

Sra. Norma is 37 years old and lives in the neighborhood of Altos de Santa Fe in the town of Choloma. She is a single mother with two children (ages 12 and 13) who are in high school.

Doña Norma sells merchandise such as clothing (for women, men, and children), toys, cooking utensils, and other products. She started this business five years ago because she needed to generate income to help her children get ahead. Norma started with little and was able to grow her business. She received two previous loans of 7000 HNL and 10,500 HNL to restock her business and was able to increase her sales, which helped to improve her family’s standard of living. Today she works 10 hours each day selling her products.

Norma is requesting a loan of 18,000 HNL so that she can restock her inventory by purchasing merchandise for the Christmas season. She hopes to increase her sales during this time. Her dream is to see her children graduate.
