Felipa's story

Felipa is 49 years old. She lives in La Providencia neighborhood, in the city of Choluteca, and her business is selling food (breakfasts, lunches and sweet treats). She also sells used clothing. Felipa's business is in a strategic location and there are a lot of passersby.

Felipa will use her loan to buy food and used clothing. During the Christmas season, Felipa sells quite a lot of clothes and she would like to have a good variety available so that she can make more profits.

Felipa lives together with her husband and her son. She works very hard in order to get her son ahead in life and provide him with a good education and better quality of life.
