A loan of $650 helped purchase of flowers for sale.

Norma's story

Norma is a member of the "Llapanchik" Community Bank. Llapanchik means "everyone united" in quechua.

Norma lives with her husband. She is 36 years old and has three children. She owns a sales stall at the food market in the city of Ayacucho, where she sells all kinds of flowers. She buys her flowers fresh from the field -- an activity she begins at 3:00 in the morning. In addition, Norma and her husband own a car with which they provide taxi service in Ayacucho.

Norma needs a loan of 2,000 soles [about US$ 650], which she will invest in the purchase of different kinds of flowers. She dreams of helping her children get ahead and buying a car to start another business.
