A loan of $650 helped buy three doors.

Reyna Isabel's story

Sra. Reyna rents out rooms in order to earn a living. She also sells basics like rice, beans, sugar, meat and chicken from her house. The business is doing well. Her children are now adults and have jobs. With help from her husband, Reyna has made progress.

Now she is seeking a loan for the fourth time to continue making improvements to the rooms she rents out as she has done with the previous loans. This time she plans to buy three doors to put on the bedrooms so that her guests feel safe in their rooms. Reyna’s future plans include adding two more floors so she can offer large and comfortable apartments to her guests.
