Felicia
Felicia is 56 years old and has lived with her partner for 22 years. She is the mother of 6 children and at present they live in their own house. Years ago she worked in the fields with her husband, but once she had several children they decided she should remain at home to care for them. It was at this point she decided to begin a food sale business, taking advantage of her ability to prepare deliciously seasoned food. Her business is becoming very profitable since she is gaining more customers. To have breakfast ready, she wakes at 4:00a.m., begins by cleaning her establishment, and then prepares breakfast for her customers who are mostly farm workers. Around 7:00 a.m. she serves breakfast and while her customers eat, she packs the lunches they will consume at the farms where they work. Although it is tiring to get up so early, Felicia is happy to do so because it allows her to cover her children’s basic expenses while her husband continues to work in agriculture. Felicia has just been sworn in as fiscal officer of her communal bank, and she is grateful for the confidence placed in her by the other members. This is her 5th loan and she promises to be responsible in making payments to MFP. The funds requested will be used to purchase supplies to prepare the daily menu.

Felicia tiene 56 años de edad, hace 22 años vive con su pareja, es madre de 6 hijos y actualmente viven en su casa propia. Años atrás se dedicaba junto a su esposo a las labores del campo, pero desde que la cantidad de hijos creció decidió quedarse en casa para cuidar de ellos. Es así que decide iniciar un negocio de venta de comida aprovechando la deliciosa sazón con la que nació. Negocio que se está volviendo muy rentable a medida que va captando más clientela. Para tener listo el desayuno se levanta a las 4.00am, empezando a realizar la limpieza de su local y después a preparar los desayunos para sus comensales que en su mayoría son agricultores, a eso de la 7.00am sirve el desayuno mientras que cada uno de sus clientes le proporcionan sus vasijas para que le sirva el almuerzo que llevarán hasta sus chacras. Madrugar es cansado, pero Felicia está feliz porque esta actividad le permite cubrir los gastos de sus hijos, mientras que su esposo se dedica a los trabajos agrícolas. Felicia acaba de juramentar como fiscal de su banco comunal, está agradecida por la confianza que le han depositado los demás integrantes, y hace promesas de cumplir con sus pagos responsablemente a MFP, este es su 5to préstamo. El dinero que solicita en este crédito es para la compra de víveres para el preparado del menú diario.
