Felicidad's story

Felicidad is 30 years old. She lives with her husband, in her sister's rustic home. Felicidad has three children and her home is in the La Hoyada de Nuestra urbanisation, in the city of Monteagudo. Felicidad's main work is dressmaking - she produces sports clothes, smart clothes, and does repairs. She does this work from home. Felicidad's partner earns an income as a builder.

Alongside her husband, Felicidad works hard in order to earn an income and cover household costs and the fees for her children's education. This is why she is applying for a loan in order to buy supplies such as material and threads to make clothes. With this she will earn an income and her children will be able to continue studying. She will also be able to build her own house, something which she is very much lacking. This loan will give Felicidad her own roof above her head.
