Felicitas is a partner of the Comunal Bank Arco Iris

Felicitas is 55 years old and married with 6 children. She travels to different fairs in the area 2 times a week to buy grains, cheese, and livestock. She then returns home and sells her products door to door. On top of that Felicitas farms her land and raises her livestock.

She needs a loan of 3000 soles to invest in the purchase of more livestock.

Her hope is that her kids have as many opportunities as possible, and to offer them and her business all the comforts necessary to succeed.
