Felicitas Espinoza's story

Felicitas is a member of the Ollantay Microfinance Institute.
Felicitas is a married 53-year-old woman with three children. She has a stand at the Nery García market, where she sells different types of meats. It is a family-run business in which her children travel to the city of Andahuaylas once a week to purchase livestock, which they then transport to the city of Ayacucho on rented trucks. After that, they are taken to the city slaughterhouse. Felicitas also travels to different markets to purchase livestock every Sunday.

Felicitas needs a loan of 3,000.00 PEN, which will be invested in the purchase of livestock—pigs, goats, and cows.
Felicitas dreams of having her own meat company, raising cattle in the Ayacuchan jungle, and finishing contruction of her house.
