Reyna Belen's story

Reyna's a hardworking woman who lives in a sparsely populated area of Managua. She's the mother of three children, two in college and one in elementary school.

Reyna works until late at night to be able to fulfill her customers' sewing requests. She does this job with her husband to help her children and get her family ahead.

The loan she's requesting is to buy materials to install a ceiling in her house. This will allow her to keep on improving her family's living conditions.
