A loan of $1,475 helped to repair facades in the units she rents out.


Norma's story

Norma is 55 years old and has a few children who are now all grown. Together with her husband she has managed a grocery store for many years. She also owns a property with various storefronts with she rents. They are both older and do not have any children to look after. They started 20 years ago with a small investment, selling herbs, surgar, flour, and other staple and non-perishable goods in the neighborhood. Things went well for them so they decided to invest more in their business, buying more products and growing their business substantially.

With that motive and with their savings, they were able to buy a property and have constructed unit by unit until completing the fifth of five units they presently own. Norma is requesting this loan in order to repair the facades of the units which she rents so that she can continue to provide excellent service to her tenants.
