Integración Pichari Group's story

Felicitas, 45, is the president and leader of the communal bank "Integración Picari," which is made up of 11 members. They are in their 13th loan cycle. She is on the board of directors along with two fellow members. Those seen in the photo are the president, the treasurer, and the secretary, the three representatives who make up the board of directors. The rest couldn't attend because of the pandemic.

For the last five years, Felicitas has been making a living in her business selling basic grocery products. She works hard and likes getting ahead for the well-being of her two children. Her objective is to continue improving herself as a person and growing in her business.

For these reasons, Felicitas is requesting a Kiva loan to buy merchandise, staple products, to offer variety so that her customers remain satisfied.

Felicitas' goal is to grow as a businesswoman and improve her service for her customers.
