Reyna's story

Reyna, age 35, is married and lives in her own home with her husband and their four children. She sells traditional local dishes from a table set up in front of her house. She provides friendly and cordial service to her customers. In addition, she serves breakfasts, juices, and stews from a stall that is located at a school in her area. Reyna has been in business for three years. Her oldest daughter helps with preparing the dishes and attending to the customers. Reyna enjoys her business because it allows her to have an income for paying the household expenses and providing for the needs of her young children. This gives her the motivation to keep progressing.

Reyna is taking this opportunity to request 1,000 PEN. She is grateful for the chance to access this loan that she needs in order to accomplish her goals. One again, she promises to submit her payments in a punctual manner. The amount she requested will be used to buy ingredients (such as rice, oil, potatoes, and other items) at a wholesale price for preparing her dishes. This will enable her to improve her earnings.
