Reina Teresa
Reyna is a clothes merchant; she sells them at her workplace because she’s been employed in the tax free zone for the last five months; her business for many years had been meat sales.

However, meat is more expensive every day so sales dropped and it wasn’t working out for her any more. She decided to find a different alternative because her husband’s earnings weren’t enough because her three children are in school.

With the goal of building her house, she will use this new loan from Afodenic to finish buying building materials and supplies like: cement and iron rods to begin the start up of her building the house completely out of concrete thus improving her living conditions.
