Reyna is a spunky seventy-nine-year-old widow who lives in the mountains of northern Nicaragua. She is a mother of six who has been widowed for thirty-six years. Reyna spoke wistfully of her life before the passing of her husband, who supported the family by working as a mechanic.
Now Reyna relies on the help of her children and the monthly food parcel she receives through CAM’s Help-for-the-Elderly program. She says, “When you are very poor you have no resources, and it is difficult to find a way forward. But my God is big; my God is beautiful. He has provided for my needs.”
