Norma's story

Norma is a member of the Sumacc Huayta community bank. She is 43 years old and does embroidery work together with her whole family. Norma has been a member of FINCA Peru for ten years. Thanks to teaching received from her mom, she decided to become a member of FINCA Peru because they are a great help to small businesspeople. They provide their clients with training sessions and help them receive good financial training. Norma is very happy with everything that she has been able to achieve. She has won prizes at a national level for the quality of her embroidery work and she is currently exporting to Argentina! Norma will use her new loan to invest in a variety of threads and materials for her embroidery business.
