Llaque Reyna's story

Llaque Reyna belongs to the La Paz II Community Bank in the Tarapoto district, San Martín province, San Martín department. She is 28, married, and has two dependent children.

The fighting spirit that has always characterized her and the desire to get ahead by her own means have served her well to set up her own business. She sells meals on the patio of her house. Little by little she has become very well known among her customers. The business is currently going very well for her.

She continues with the same business. She sells every evening. During the day she combines this activity with an urban transportation service using her motorcycle cart.

With this loan for 2,000 PEN she wants to buy supplies like sacks of rice, eggs, and chickens to make her ‘juanes’, a dish traditionally eaten in the Peruvian rainforest. It’s made from chicken, rice, olives, and eggs and wrapped in a special leaf. She will also buy gutted chicken for her “anticuchos” (kebobs). For herself, she will buy kitchen utensils to offer quality service.

Reynita feels peaceful and happy with what she does. She is grateful to the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for contributing to the fulfillment of her dreams and goals.
