Many Sisters~ Felicita, from Peru

When i first saw Felicita and her little lambs, i wanted to help her be successful with her business. How could i resist?
Here is her story from the Kiva page- Felicita is 69 years old and is a simple woman. She lives with her husband, Pedro, and her two grandchildren, Luis and Sergio, whom she loves very much. They live together in the home she inherited 50 years ago. She learned what she needed to know to work in the fields when she was young. Thanks to her parents, she got the farmland that helped get her family and seven children ahead. They are all healthy and on their own, “each with his own family,” she says.

A few years ago she decided to sell some food in the local school cafeteria in order to earn extra money and provide the best for her grandchildren. She is a member of the “Manantiales de Ullusca” communal bank and this is her third cycle with MFP. She is grateful for the loan because it helps her improve her business and she promises to be on time with her payments.

Felicita will use the money from this loan to buy compost and alfalfa seed to maintain her crops and be able to feed her livestock.

Wow, Felicita is to be commended for working at 69 years old! I am worn out now some days, LOL.
I hope her new business venture is a big success.
