A loan of $575 helped to model an adequate space where she can sell her desserts and drinks.

Norma's story

Norma is 45 years old, she is a widow, and the mother of 5 children. Her children are all single and they work hard to support her as much as they can. She sells desserts and cold drinks (beer, soft drinks, gelatins, among other things) from her home. She sells her products in the evenings and she has been doing so for the past 2 yeasrs. In the mornings she provides home maintenance services in private homes. She loves her work because she gets to meet so many people and she likes to share business knowledge and practices. The hardest part about the job is trying to find a store to rent to proviD. her customers with better service. She is motivated to keep working to cover the daily expenses and to keep her business active. She requests a loan so that she can build a gazebo maD. from wood and palm tree branches as the roof covering. Under this shaded area she wants to model it appropriately so that she can sell her drinks from it and to proviD. her customers with better service.
