Reina Del Carmen's story

Reina studied up to Grade 9 of basic education. She is the single mother of a 3 year old son who is completely dependent on her.

Reina has been working Monday to Friday in a store selling basic needs items for several years. On Saturday and Sunday she sells tortillas. Her mother helps her.

She needs this loan to buy corn and a stove to sell tortillas. She will be able to support her son with her earnings as she is a single mother. The loan will improve her quality of living as it will make her work more efficient.

Reina's dream is to improve her house as it needs a number of repairs.
