Norma's story

Norma is 27-years-old. She is separated from her partner and lives with her daughters Ágata, 13, and Yesthal, 10. She earns her living selling food as a street vendor in Juliaca. Norma is extremely dedicated to her work, since she has always enjoyed cooking, and her delicious dishes, which get better all the time, attract customers, making her business even more profitable. The most difficult part of her work is obtaining ingredients for her recipes, as prices have gone up. This will be Norma’s first loan with Microfinanzas Prisma. She plans to use the money to purchase more ingredients so she can prepare her dishes and increase her income.
