Felipa
We are visiting Felipa at her clothing business. She is a very amiable person. When we arrived at her business, she began by telling us that she is 46 years old. She is a very hard-working woman, and she has three children who are in school. She is separated from her husband. She tells us that she has always lived in her community, since she was born and to this day.

This time she has requested a personal loan to buy fireworks. In addition to this business, she also sells children’s clothes. When we visited her to take the photo, she still did not have the fireworks merchandise. That is why it is not in the photo with her merchandise and that the photo is of her clothing stand. Her order arrives days later in order to start working with them at the start of November.

She tells us that she has been working with fireworks for 18 years. Her friend and Godmother of her children taught her this work, but unfortunately, she died. She was the one who gave her the idea; she was a wholesaler.

Felipa buys the fireworks and sells them by herself. She tells us that she invests part and her income doubles. Therefore, she has no large problems, and it always goes very well for her.

It is only at this time that there is a big family problem. Two of her children went to the United State two years ago, and she does not see them. She is very sad and in despair about this. She would like to see them again one day. She only asks God to keep them well.

In spite of all of this, she continues to be motivated by her three children who go to school. She wants all of them to continue studying. Felipa is very proud because she was not able to go to school. However, she would like her children to be successful. She says that as long as she is able to give them an education, she will do so.
