Reyna, since she was a little girl, has always worked in agriculture. Despite the challenges that she met along the way, she has managed to make it alongside her husband. Everything was going well with their plantation but then they were faced with the illness of their young daughter suffering from intestinal problems. The illness put the family in a bind. Having gone through that seemingly endless time in their life, she wants to fulfill her dreams of being a business woman and not only to grow and sell vegetables but also establish a small grocery store in their home. For this, she is requesting a loan to start her business in the near future.
