Norma Vie's story

Norma is 42 years old and is the single mother of a 26 year old young woman. She has worked on a cruise ship for six years, giving dancing lessons to clients. She returns to the country to visit her family every six months. Norma is originally from the Caribbean coastal part of the country and saw the need to go to the capital city so that her daughter could study at university. She is asking for a second loan so that she could add a room to her house and she needs girders, zinc metal sheeting, cement, cinder blocks, iron bars, wire, and lumber. Her future plans are to finish building her house and set up a store with lots of variety for her daughter and grandchildren for whom she works.
