Felicitas
Felicitas is 27 years old. She is married to Carlos and has 2 small children with whom they live in an adobe house. She has worked in agricultural activities related to growing organic coffee and cacao since she was young. She has been doing this for more than 8 years and has managed to develop it into a good source of income to provide for her family's economic needs. She thinks of her trade as peaceful work and at the same time it allows her to spend more time with her husband who gives her a lot of help.

She has the good fortune to have very fertile land which yields good production in spite of the fact that she has had to battle insect attacks which threatened her production. Because of this she has to always be vigilant of her crops. To better develop her work and to have organic products, Felicitas tries to use only organic fertilizer while receiving constant training by agricultural entities.

This is her second loan with Kiva and she is grateful for the financial support she is receiving so she can get ahead. She pledges to pay her loans back on time. At this time she would like to borrow 1,000 new Soles to buy organic fertilizer to feed her crops
