Reina De La Paz's story

Reina de la Paz P. is 31 years old and resides in Santiago de María, located in the Department of Usulután. She lives with her husband, who works as a mason, and their two children (ages 2 and 1). Reina has a vegetable and fruit stand at the Santiago de María municipal market, which is located in the eastern part of the country. For the past eight years she has owned this business, which has enabled her to grow as a person. One of her dreams was to have her own business, so now she is able to help her husband with the household expenses.

On many occasions her work become unstable because of a lack of contracts, so Reina is requesting a loan so that she will have the money to buy more fruits and vegetables. This will allow her to gain more customers since she will be able to satisfy all of their preferences and desires. Having more customers will be of great benefit to Reina because it means she will have more income for her family.
