A loan of $725 helped to buy various products to stock her store.

Reyna's story

Reyna, who is 49 years old, is very sensible and hardworking. She lives in her own house with her two beloved children, Haydee, who is 24, and Carlos, who is 15, to whom she wants to offer a better quality of life. Every day, very early in the morning, Reyna opens the doors of her grocery store to attend to her customers. She is a very persuasive seller, and she always convinces her customers to take something home. Her store has a lot of customers, since it is the best-stocked in her neighborhood. What she likes most about her work is conversing with her customers, since this way she can find out the things that are happening in her neighborhood. She has had this business for 10 years and finds that the most difficult part is having to stay inside her store all day, without being able to go out.

For her business in the future, she hopes to improve the infrastructure of her store. This will be her tenth loan with MFP, for which she awaits the help of everyone to complete her goals. In her communal bank, she is a very respected member for the order that she brings to the group. With the 2000 PEN that she is applying for, she will buy more products to stock her grocery store better.
