For 16 years Felipa worked selling fruits and vegetables door-to-door, and little by little her business grew. However, later she needed to stay at home and care for her disabled son and as a result was no longer able to continue with this work. Today, she has her own small convenience store. She is well known throughout the neighborhood for the careful attention she gives to each of her clients. Through the money, time, and dedication Felipa has put into her store she is a fighter and a hard worker.
Felipa travels once a week to the City of Clorinda to buy merchandise for her store. These things include: wine, mineral water, beer and more. It is to this end that Felipa has asked for a loan.
