A loan of $450 helped to build a wall.

Norma's story

Norma Hernández is 37 years old. She is married and has three children. She is a merchant and sells products via catalog. On weekends she also sells clothing. The money helps her husband with living expenses. On his part, her husband has a more stable salary. He works in a company as a bricklayer and also does some side jobs as a bricklayer. They try to save that extra money because they want to keep improving. Norma is asking for a loan to be able to wall in her new home. They need it in front and in back. One of the main reasons they are asking for this loan is because previously there have been attempts to rob them. With the fence they will have more security and they will also improve the property they want to leave their children as inheritance.
