A loan of $350 helped to plaster and paint her home.

Felicinda Teodora's story

Felicinda is a 52 year old woman living in the city of Chincha with her daughter, who she loves and who is her main motivation in life. She is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person, who dedicates all of her efforts to making sure he daughter gets ahead in life, as she has always been both father and mother to her.

Sadly, due to a lack of money and the fact that she had to work from a young age, Felicinda couldn't study for a professional qualification, but she would have liked to. In her free time she likes to watch television and sometimes, like a good Chincha woman, she cooks a delicious local dish, Carapulcra, to share with her family.

On her own initiative, and with lots of hard work and dedication, Felicinda works in her little business selling food. She sells delicious local dishes, as well as casseroles depending on the seasons. Felicinda works everyday from the early hours in the morning for approximately 10 hours, she enjoys her work and believes that is going well because of the quality of seasoning and the friendly service that she offers her customers.

Felicinda is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as it is thanks to their help that she will be able to plaster and paint her home and, in this way, she will be able to have improved security and greater well being at home. Felicinda will continue working hard to achieve her dream of having a large restaurant.
