Felicitas's story

Felicitas is a member of the Alianza village bank. Felicitas is 51 years old. She is married and has four children. She buys cochineal, the insect from which carmine is made, and tara, a Peruvian shrub, to sell them again. She also travels to the jungle in Ayacucho every week to sell groceries and produce, and takes special orders for clothes. Felicitas needs a loan of 1000 soles, which she will use to buy a variety of clothing. She dreams of being able to send her children to school and increase her sales.
