Felicidad's story

Felicidad is a long time client. She is very responsible, and she has worked with Emprender since 2003. She started working in supportive groups, and she is currently in her ninth individual loan cycle.

She has a neighborhood store. Also, on the week ends she sells food. On the week days she sells her products as well. She hand weaves alpaca mantillas. She is under contract with a woman who exports these weavings. Also, in the mornings she has work cleaning in the Chasquipampa region. Her husband works as a contract bricklayer. They have three school aged children. Her husband previously worked in transportation, but he sold his car and left this activity in order to work on the construction of their house.

It can be seen that she is a very active person. She works with the collaboration of her husband and children in the four activities that she has.
