A loan of $500 helped to purchase products like rice, oil, cheese, beans and other items.


Norma Maricela's story

Norma has a store. She lives with her family, her husband and their children, and both parents work in the home to make headway for the kids since they don't have relatives abroad. Norma started her business with the support of her parents, who taught her how to do it. She runs the store out of her home and doesn't have a fixed schedule. She is requesting the loan to purchase merchandise like rice, oil, cheese, beans and other products to offer her customers. This investment will help her grow the business by having more items in stock and thus increasing her sales volume. Her dream is to have her own home, to expand her merchandise and to earn more income to provide her children with a good education.
