Reina Isabel
Señora Reina is 45 years old, lives with her husband, and has three children who depend on her. Her husband works and she supports him in everything. She has her own house, and for 13 years she has made a living through the business of selling groceries and used clothing. She has her business in her home, where her customers and friends come to buy her products.

Doña Reina needs the loan in order to buy secondhand clothing like skirts, pants, dresses, shirts, and blouses because it is nearing the Christmas season when this type of clothing sells well.

With the help of the loan, Doña Reina will stock up her store and she hopes to get earnings that help to improve her quality of life and the life of her family a little bit. Doña Reina's dream is for her family to be well and very close-knit.
