Felicitas's story

Felicitas is 53 years-old and married with four grown children and four grandchildren. Every week, Felicitas travels six hours from Ayacucho to the jungle town of San Francisco to sell regional vegetables and fruits in her market stand there. Felicitas is asking for a loan of 2,000 PEN in order to buy potatoes, squash, tomatoes, mangoes, and grapes in bulk from Nery Garcia market in Ayacucho. She will also use part of her loan to pay the cost of transportation from Ayacucho to San Francisco.

She says business has been a bit slow lately but she expects it to pick up as the new school year begins. Felicitas is a long time member of Kiva partner FINCA Peru and says she particularly likes the ease in which they lend money and help her save. She has sent all of her children to school using her savings with FINCA Peru. Her goal right now is to keep saving in order to complete construction on the roof of her house.
