Norma's story

Norma is without a doubt a brave, hardworking woman; she says she’s humble, honest and tenacious and that she loves her husband since they both work together manufacturing concrete blocks. She guides and loves her children who don’t mind working. What’s important for her is to move her family forward. The loan she’s asked Fodemi for is to buy cement, volcanic pumice stone, gray powder and sand to manufacture concrete blocks since they are in high demand these days and it’s an opportunity not to be passed up since her product is good and well-known. Norma’s dream is to buy an industrial block maker so she can triple her current production. She’s aware that she can reach her dream but must work to do so which is why every day she gets up thanking God for one more day of life in which she can work to reach her dream.
