Reina De La Paz's story

Reina runs a store, and at the same time sells pupusas and meals. She lives with her parents, is married, and has one daughter.

Reina's business began a few years ago. She learned how to run a business working in a cafe, which gave her enough experience to establish her own business in her home. Her mother helps attend to the customers.

She is requesting this loan to stock the supplies of the store, buying goods such as oil, pasta, condiments, sausage, and to invest in the her Pupusa business, buying cheese, pork, and drinks.

With this investment, she will improve her business, achieving a better service for her customers.

Her dream and objective for the business is to have a profitable source of income with which she can meet the needs of her parents and daughter. They need the income to cover their living costs.

In addition, she hopes to grow her business and strengthen its sales.
