Reyna
Reyna is 59 years old and a very kind, good, and enterprising woman. She is the mother of 7 children who she raised until they were grown-up. Now she only has one child at home, 14 year old Kaori. She has always lived alongside Armando, her husband, with whom she has worked to be able to offer a good education and upbringing to their children. Many years ago, Reyna had a good and prosperous business selling groceries. She had a very large and well-stocked store. Unfortunately, she had an illness that left her bedridden for a long time and so her business fell and she could no longer run it. As a result, 18 years ago, she decided to start a new business, one that she wouldn't have to work at all the time, but rather one that would enable her to rest. This is how she started to work in her new business that, at the start, she only did at the weekends. With time, she started working on alternating days. She works selling patasca (a soup from the mountains). In our city, there are many people from this part of out country and they very often go in search of dishes that are prepared the way that they like, with good seasoning and well made. She has been running this new business for 18 years and her husband helps her.
The business is going very well and she has good sales that bring her a good income. For the future, she'd like to grow her business and make a greater variety of dishes and so better serve her customers. This will be her fourth loan from MFP. She is very happy to know that she will have financial support as she feels more sure that she can move her business forward. For her part, she promises once more to continue being good at making her repayments. She is very happy to work alongside the community bank members as they are all very united and responsible.
She will use the $950 she is requesting to buy ingredients and supplies to continue her business and to prepare a greater variety of dishes.
