Felicita Olinda's story

Felicita Olinda is 35 years old. She is in a common law relationship and through this union has 4 children who are 18, 17, 14, and 12 years old. Her partner's a driver. They live in Pajan, a place where people work in farming and in the sale of their products. It also has been severely affected by the health emergency caused by COVID-19.

She is a fighting woman who, despite how hard the situation is, gathers strength to move forward and more now that her husband almost can't go out to work. It is thanks to her business that they get ahead. She has a place in her home and sells a great variety of products such as ribbons, threads, zippers, and many other sewing items. For her, the health crisis has been very hard. At first she couldn't sell and now she is selling but not like before.

This loan is to buy threads, zippers, buttons, lace, ribbons, and other products to stock her store.
