Felicidad is a very young person who lives in a community in Mizque province, in Cochabamba department. Felicidad was left alone when she was very young as her mother and her little sister died in a traffic accident. Her father gave her a small plot of farmland to work. She started farming with her neighbors in her community. This is where she learned to grow tomatoes and onions as she grew up. Where Felicidad lives, crops are only harvested twice a year. Through her hard work and the loan that she is requesting, Felicidad would like to invest more in her crops, buying organic fertilizer and other products so that she can recover some of what she lost in her previous harvest as a result of a drought. In this way, she will improve her quality of life and help her younger siblings.
