Rhina Senayda's story

Rhina is 33 years old and lives with her family in San Miguel in the Department of San Miguel. She has four children (ages 3, 6, 10, and 14). Rhina manages a store and is also a hot dog vendor. Her store is located in her home, which allows her to attend to her customers most of the time. For her hot dog business, she prepares the food and then her employees travel on bicycles to different places throughout San Miguel offering and selling hot dogs. Rhina has been in this business for ten years.


She currently needs a loan to acquire bicycle carts as well as merchandise for her store. This investment will help her with her businesses. She needs the additional bicycles because she plans to hire new employees and increase her production.


Her goals include working hard to expand her business to more places and improving the financial condition of her family.
