Felicia is married with four children and they are all in school. Felicia is a 42 year old trader. She believes in hard work and dedication as the primary antidote to minimizing poverty. She is very serious with her business.
She trades in food items like plantain. She started this business eighteen years ago and she has been very resourceful to her family. She wants to use the loan to buy a larger supply of plantains to serve her customers throughout the season. She has been facing increased prices due to the current food crisis in the country. She believes that with this loan she can buy bunches of plantain directly from the farmers, preventing middlemen who retail to her at high prices.
