Maria Felipa
María Felipa D. J. is 56, and she lives in the Trujillo province, La Libertad department, Perú. She belongs to the La Perbola II Communal Bank. She went to school until the sixth grade. Her parents did not have the economic resources to give her more education. She has six children, and one is economically dependent upon her.

She makes stuffed animals and backpacks for children. To make the stuffed animals and backpacks she uses supplies like felt, polar fleece, industrial cotton thread, and silk lace, etc. She buys these products in the wholesale market because she gets them at a favorable lower cost. She sells her products as a traveling vendor.

With her first loan for 300 PEN she bought material like fabric for stuffed animals, cotton, felt, zippers, thread, pins, and wool, etc. With this loan for 1,000 PEN she will buy more material like cotton fabric, felt, polar fleece, cotton filling, and zippers to make backpacks for children in primary and secondary school.

She dreams of increasing her sales and her earnings and being able to rent a stand in the market or the commercial center where they display backpacks and stuffed animals. That way she would be able to generate greater sales and income for her family.
