Reina has a business making and selling bags. She has been doing this for three years. She was taught this by a cousin and realized that it was an activity that could generate revenues to pay the household expenses so she decided to do it. Before she became an artisan she worked in a restaurant in the capital.

She works in her house and only has to go out to sell the product. Her young daughter helps her with the work. She has no fixed hours, she does it whenever she has completed the household chores.

The loan the Reina is requesting is to buy 30 cones of algave thread, a spinning wheel because the one she has is rented and spools to put the thread on. She will increase her income as she has her own equipment. She wants to expand her business and buy more raw material to give work to a cousin and to make more money. She wants to help her daughter with the profits so that she can study and not stop in mid- flight and one day become a professional.
