Felicia's story

Sra. Felicia is 46 years old and a single mother with four children (ages 22, 19, 17, and 12). She prepares and sells food from her vending stall, which is located at one of the busiest markets in the city of Cochabamba. This loan is her fourth cycle with Emprender. Sra. Felicia will use this loan to buy construction materials for remodeling her vending stall so that she can provide greater comfort for her customers. She has many customers and tries to treat them with great friendliness and respect. Her food is also well-prepared. Sra. Felicia faces challenges in her business, such as dealing with competition from other people who also sell food. By utilizing the benefits of this loan, she will be able to provide greater comfort for her family through the purchase of appliances for her home.

Felicia is grateful to Emprender for giving her opportunities to improve her quality of life. In the photograph, Sra. Felicia is shown with her daughter who helps her with making sales.
