Reyna Isabel's story

Doña Reyna is 39 years old and a hardworking woman. Since her youth, she has had to help her parents by working because her family had few financial resources. Reyna has two children who are in school. Her business involves selling tortillas, curds, and pork. On the weekends, she prepares soup in order to earn extra income. When she first started, Reyna was a traveling merchant through the capital of Managua. She attracted many customers who now buy her flavorful tortillas.


Being a single mother is not easy for Reyna, but with great effort she has been able to support her two children. She wants them to study so that they can have better working opportunities in life. Her house is made of blocks and boards, but it lacks plaster on the walls and tiles on the floor because at the moment there is only dirt. Reyna will build the kitchen and make other improvements gradually using the loans from AFODENIC. Her financial condition provides little available income, so she is making improvements for her family’s welfare in phases.
