Felicita Del Carmen's story

Felicita, 35, lives with her husband and two children, ages 15 and 16. Felicita has a small shop selling plastic products such as baskets, plant pots in different sizes, food containers, big water containers (called "guacales" in El Salvador). She has been doing this work for 8 years. Her business is located in the municipal market near her home where she has many customers.

She is requesting a loan so she can buy more plastic products in different sizes and numbers so she can increase her products and profits since it is her only source of employment and thus could give her family a better economic stability.
