Reyna has a general store where she sells vegetables and fruit, in Quinua district. She used to be a stall holder in a market but she became sick and had an operation which meant that she couldn't travel any more. Her brother offered her his house and there she opened a store which she gradually stocked. It is doing well.
Reyna joined FINCA Peru through an invitation from an existing member. She likes it because she has learned to save, to value herself as a woman and to have good relationships with her children. With her savings, she built her home in Ayacucho where she lives with her eldest son. She is now saving to build a second level on her home.
