Reyna Ester's story

Reyna L. is 45 years old and works making and selling donuts and eclairs. Her business has become a small company and she pays two employees: a woman who helps make the products and a man who is in charge of distributing them.

Reyna's speciality is making cherry donuts, different sized sugar donuts and eclairs. All the confectionery she makes is absolutely delicious.

Reyna has customers with whom she has a permanent contract and she delivers all her products. Her customers are women who own food stands in educational centers in the city of Danli.

Reyna is a single mother who has three children, only one of whom (a daughter) is still dependent. Her daughter is currently in elementary school and she covers all her expenses.

Reyna will use her loan money to buy materials for making her donuts.
