A loan of $600 helped to buy plated jewelry items to sell to her coworkers, because her potential market is there.


Reyna Carolina's story

Reyna, age 53, is a well-known person for her long career working in the town mayor’s office. Currently, she lives alone with her child who is studying in high school.

In spite of being secretary in the town mayor’s office for the past eight years, Reyna also buys plated jewelry pieces for women such as earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. She does this work together with her best friend, because it was the friend who introduced her to the work. It generates a certain amount of income for her, and although it isn’t much, it helps her have some money for her child.

With this loan, the client wants to buy a lot of plated jewelry items to sell to her co-workers, because her potential market is there, where she has the majority of her customers. She also has her neighbors.

Her dream is that her child would enroll in a good university.
