Maria Elva

Maria Elva belongs to the Community Bank "Las Violetas II". She lives in Jr. Nicaragua Cuadra 1, in the Santa Isabel region of the Cajamarca district, located in Rioja, San Martin. She is married, 52 years old and has 3 children, all of whom are independent.



For the past many years Maria Elva has been providing laundry services. When she just started she washed clothes by hand but her customers soon started to multiply. Given the high quality of service she provides her clients were also very satisfied. With the first loan of S/.300 nuevos soles she purchased a second-hand washing machine. But this soon was not enough either because she soon started providing her services to private organizations that sent her large volumes of washing to do. Currently she has a digital washing machine that has been enormous help to her.



One of her dreams and a goal to strive for is the establishment of a larger laundry shop, set up with industrial washers and dryers, so that she might expand her roster of clients.



With the requested loan of S/2000 she will completely pay off the washer she currently has. And she will purchase boxes of detergent and fabric softener, to keep up the level of service she has been providing.



Maria Elva feels like a very accomplished woman, and now more than ever she has the drive to make her dreams a reality. She is grateful to Manuela Ramos (Kiva Field Partner) to having helped her start up her business, as it has been done for so many other women entrepreneurs.

La señora Maria Elva, pertenece al Banco Comunal “Las Violetas II”, vive en el Jr. Nicaragua Cuadra 1, Barrio Santa Isabel, Distrito de Nueva Cajamarca, Provincia de Rioja, Departamento de San Martín. Es casada, tiene 52 años y 03 hijos todos independientes.

Desde hace muchos años Maria Elva se dedica al lavado de ropa, en sus inicio lo hacia manualmente pero sus usuarios fueron aumentando. dado el servicio de calidad que realizaba a sus clientes estos quedaban satisfechos, por lo que con el préstamo inicial de S/. 300.00 que obtuvo adquirió una lavadora eléctrica de segunda mano, pero esto tampoco fue suficiente porque entre sus clientes también ya cuenta con instituciones privadas que envían gran cantidad de ropa para lavar, actualmente cuenta con otra lavadora digital que le es de muchísima ayuda.

Uno de sus sueños y metas por lograr, es implementar una lavandería mas grande con lavadoras y secadoras industriales y así pueda expandir mas su cartera de clientes.

Con el préstamo de S/ 2000.00, cancelará el costo de su actual lavadora. Además comprara detergente en cajas, jabón en barras y suavizantes en frascos para así seguir dando un servicio de calidad.

Maria Elva, hoy en día se siente una mujer muy realizada, con más ganas de alcanzar y hacer realidad sus sueños. Agradece a Manuela Ramos por ayudarla a iniciar su negocio y también a muchas mujeres que quieren crecer empresarialmente.
