Reyna Milagro's story

Young Reyna, 21, is single living with relatives in a village in south Honduras; she has a son who’s dependent ton her.

She has a grocery store at home where she tends to her customers and friends who visit daily because she sells meats, dairy products, clothes, cosmetics, groceries, blended fruit treats, shrimp, fish, etc. She’s asking for the loan to buy shrimp, meats, Maseca [brand of corn flour] soft-drinks, sandals, coffee, sugar and other basic staple items.

Reyna invested the loan in her business and intends with this to earn higher profits to have a better life with her son. Reyna’s dream for this year is that sales are good so that she can continue forward with her home improvement plans.
