Reyna Isabel
Reyna is 48 years old and has a son. Reyna is originally from Sauce, in the north of Nicaragua, and is hard-working, responsible and has a desire to get ahead. In her free time, Reyna likes to enjoy the company of her family.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of money, Reyna was not able to study at university and had to work from a young age.

Thanks to her efforts and her desire to get ahead, Reyna now has a gym in her home. She works ten hours every day. This loan will be used to maintain the exercise machines in the gym so that, in the not-too-distant future, she can earn a higher income. Reyna is grateful to Kiva investors for helping poor countries such as Nicaragua and for giving poor people the opportunity to have a decent job.
