Norma Dalila's story

Norma Dalila is 32 years old and lives together with her two children who are 11 and 8 years old. Her children are both currently in school. Norma's business is selling vegetables in the town market in her area. She is very well known because she always has a variety of fresh vegetables at a good price. She is an incredible woman who works hard to provide her children with their daily bread. Every day, she gets up very early in the morning to go and buy her vegetables from the central market in the country's capital city because there she has access to a large variety of fresh vegetables at very good prices. Her dream is to provide her children with better living conditions than those she had. She does not lose hope of seeing her children become professionals. Norma is not unconcerned by her financial situation as things are becoming increasingly difficult and needs are increasing over time. This has led her to take the decision to invest in her business so that she will have the ability to deal with greater demand. This will allow her to keep her business active for longer, given that it is her main source of income. Right now, Norma does not have the money she needs to make this investment. For this reason, she has decided to request a loan from INTEGRAL to invest in buying a variety of vegetables wholesale (carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, chilis, chayotes, etc.) This will allow her to attract more customers and thereby make more income with which to achieve her dream.
