Felicia Aquilina's story

Felicia Aquilina, 40, is a go-getter and a married woman with 3 children. The youngest, who is next to her in the photograph, is a 1 year and 5 months old; the others are school-aged. She became acquainted with EDAPROSPO 4 years ago. She has had a business providing seamstress services and making garments for 3 years. In addition, over the last 2 years she has been gradually developing a business selling beauty products. She tells us that she started out helping her sister-in-law and managed to learn and decided to work independently. With her daily efforts she has managed to buy herself a sewing machine, materials for her business, a refrigerator and a wardrobe. Her income pays for the education of her children and is used to invest in the business. Felicia tells us that her biggest dream is to own and manage her own workshop.

The loan recently granted will be invested in the purchase of fabrics for the production of shirts. Felicia is very grateful to the lenders for supporting all of the people of limited means and in this way improving their quality of life.
