Reina Teresa's story

Reina is a humble woman who lives in a populous Managua neighborhood with a high crime rate. She is looking to improve her home little by little and provide more security for her children. Reina works in a free zone as a sewing machine operator. She has three school-aged children and her goal is for them to graduate from university. She has her husband’s support and he works as a public transportation conductor. Reina was only able to buy part of the building materials with the money from previous loan, because they keep getting more expensive, and now needs a new loan to buy the rest that she needs to build a wall around her house, which she is doing in stages.
