Norma Ileana's story

Norma, aged 46, works selling clothing. She has worked in this business for 6 years. She lives in the city of León. She began selling perfumes to her colleagues when she worked as a secretary. Her first products were silver jewellery and perfumes, which she sold for cash and credit. On finding herself out of work she dedicated herself full-time to selling various merchandise. She sells the majority of her products to people who work in factories, banks, and offices, as well as housewives. She has survived in this way for 6 years. In the future, she wants to have an accessory shop where she will offer beauty products, various clothing, and perfumes wholesale. She is applying for this loan to buy cosmetics, jewellery, perfumes, and underwear for men, women and children, socks, handbags, vests, etc.
