Felicidad lives in her own little house in the Villa Obrajes zone. She is married and has five children. She and her husband work hard to take care of their home since with five school-age children they don't have enough money.
Felicidad comes from humble and simple people. She is very hard-working and self-sacrificing. She sells used things like, for example, clothing and other used things that she buys, sometimes by visiting house to house, and later she sells them at higher prices. She has spots where she sells her products. She is asking for this loan to increase her capital so she can buy more merchandise.
Felicidad's husband is a bricklayer. He has contracts, and when he has no work, he takes care of the children. They are both very grateful to Emprender and Kiva, who have given them this opportunity by giving them the loan.
