A loan of $1,000 helped to buy more clothing for all ages.

Norma Lorena's story

Norma is a 39-year-old woman who studied up to the 9th grade and is in a relationship. Her partner works as a driver for public transport. She has three children, a 20-year-old and 17-year-old twins, of which only her twin daughters live with her and are studying for their high school degrees. Her son is in a relationship and works as a salesman in a store.

She is someone who likes sales very much. She has made a living by selling clothing for her entire life; this is the only work she has done. She travels to the cities near where she lives by bus in order to sell clothing. Her work schedule is from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The loan she is asking for from Fundación Campo is to buy more clothing for all ages in order to keep selling and generating income to maintain her family. The loan will be of much benefit in providing her the opportunity to continue with her business and ensuring her income.

With the earnings generated from the investment, she hopes to pay off the loan and save a part because she would like to acquire a space to sell her clothing and to possess a vehicle to transport herself and not have to travel via bus. She also wants to help her daughters keep studying so that they can attain a university education. She knows that she will succeed if she keeps striving as she has to date.
