Felicitas
Felicitas, 61 years old, is married to Segundino, who is 70 years old. Together they have 11 children, but they only live with two of them: Esther, who is 20, and Alvaro, 18. They live together in their own home, located in the community of Sanchirio. She is a fighting woman of advanced age, who has been in agriculture for 40 years, together with Segundino. Every morning they go to their farmland, where they take care of their plantations of corn, bananas and coffee. What she likes the most is clearing their harvest of the weeds that are constantly growing, which they call "weeding".


In the afternoon, they take care of the chickens and pigs, which they feed and sell their meat to the inhabitants of their same community. She confirms that she is happy about the years that she has passed in the field, and she is planning to get ahead more with their harvests. This is her fourth loan with MFP, and at her age, she feels that there are people who have confidence in her work, and even more so in the effort that she puts forth. She is thankful for her community bank, and for the opportunity offered. She has thought to invest the loan in building her house in order to be able to rent rooms, and in the same manner, she will invest in paying off the debt of a motorcycle, since she is thinking of offering public transport service.
