Felicidad's story

Felicidad M. is from the village of Sampagar, Damulog, Bukidnon. She is 47 years old. Felicidad is married and has 6 adult children. To make a living, Felicidad owns & operates a business raising livestock. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes from raising pigs for sale. Felicidad has been engaged in her business for over 10 years and earns approximately 8000 PHP a month from these activities.

In 2009, Felicidad joined HSPFI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Felicidad has successfully repaid a previous loan of 12000 PHP from HSPFI. This previous loan was used to purchase baby livestock to raise & sell in future.

Felicidad is requesting a new loan of 15000 PHP, which will be used again to purchase baby livestock to raise & sell in future. This loan will be the 4th loan taken out by Felicidad from HSPFI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve/expand her business.
