Felicidad is divorced and has two dependent children, one of whom is still in school. Felicidad sells milk to an industrial milk plant starting very early in the morning. She also produces cheese, but her main source of income is buying and selling cows. Her primary customers are very distant provinces.

Felicidad is a very responsible person who fights hard to support her children. She has been in business for 15 years. She started out from zero when she separated from her husband because she had a lot of expenses. Plus, she says, her ex-husband went off with everything they had, so she fell into a terrible depression and took sick. Now, though, Felicidad has a great desire to work, so she needs a loan to increase her capital.
