Reyna's story

Reyna is 41 years old. She is a very nice and cheerful woman with a strong desire to progress in life. She is separated from the father of her three children, and she currently lives in her mother’s house with her brother, her mother and two of her children (Jail, 19 and Nicker, 15). She sells candies and sweets, as well as regional soft drinks of different flavors. She weekly purchases her products from a supplier and she sells them arranging them on a small table just outside her house. She started more than 5 years ago with her own working capital, and her mother and her children occasionally help her running the stall. She thinks her activity is profitable because of the good money she makes, an additional income for her household’s necessities. She has had economic difficulties before starting her activity, as she did not make enough money to face the continue raise ion the prices of food; she now wants to carry on her activity in order to solve these problems and because of the good response her activity receives. She also wants to expand her activity by selling ice-creams as well. This is her second loan with MFP, and she hopes she will succeed in complying with her goals. She also says she likes her Communal Bank for the help they offer to people wanting to progress in life. She has requested a loan of 1000 PEN, and she will use it to buy candies to sell in her stall. She wants to buy these products at wholesale price to stock up her inventory and improve her earnings.
