Reina Adelina
Reina is a single mother with 4 children, 2 of whom work with her in her business selling tortillas. She gets up early in the morning to prepare the dough and make the tortillas, and by dawn she has fresh products to offer her customers. This small business supports Reina and her children, which is why she is requesting a loan to buy corn, propane gas for the industrial stove on which she makes her tortillas, and chickens, so that she can sell stuffed chickens during the Christmas season for family dinners. With these sales she will support herself.
