Reina's story

Mrs. Reina Meliana B. is single and has one daughter. Her daughter is young, and goes to public school. Reina’s business has a great location in the center of Market number 4, in the business district, on Rodríguez de Francia Avenue c/Battilana. Reina starts her day at a very early hour – 4:00 AM – in order to buy everything that she needs for her business. She started with approximately Gs. 1,000,000, equivalent to US$250, which has grown with as time passed. Now she has a large portfolio of clients, and her shop is located in a well-populated, busy area. Reina would like a loan to buy various merchandise, such as T-shirts, blouses, a variety of lingerie and underwear for men and women, and especially children’s clothes for spring and summer. One of Reina’s goals is to be able to expand her business soon, by buying equipment or furnishings for her future store, in order to offer a more comfortable environment to her clients.
