Felicita
Felicita is 54 years old and married to Alberto, with whom she has seven children; only four of them still live with her. They live together in their own home located in Huacamayo.

She has six parcels of land where she produces citrus, bananas and annatto. She has been carrying out this activity for 20 years, and is sure of its profitability; most of all the citrus and annatto since the prices are very good and demand never decreases. In this manner, she managed to support and educate the children who are now on their own. She hopes to provide better opportunities for those that still live with her.

Concurrently, she has a small store where she offers basic needs products to the townspeople of her area, thereby earning additional income for her family. Felicita wishes to grow in both activities, which is why she will work as she has up until now.

This is the 7th loan she is receiving from MFP, which is why she gives her word to make her monthly payments on time. She belongs to the “Huacamayo” cooperative bank, where she feels very glad to be working with a team.

Felicita will invest the funds in two parts; half into bags of fertilizer, and the other half into buying food products for her store.
