Norma and her husband work to cover the expenses of the home and to maintain their two children, who are still under age, and require attention and constant care. Norma is a woman is lots of energy, as she has to find time to keep up with the business and raise her children.
The M. family has managed to do well, but the recent increment of family expenses due to the rise of prices in the market, and the multiple child related expenses such as education, have forced Norma to work longer hours, and to sell her products on credit basis with a promise of payment. It is of absolute importance that the M. maximize their income opportunities.
In order to proviD. her children with a better education and future, Norma is requesting a loan to buy more merchandise for the store, (rice, beans etc…), and thus to grow her business and proviD. for her family.
