Elias, born on 11 December 1987, in Villa Barrientos, 5 kilometers from Santa Rita, now lives in Pacay neighborhood of the city of Santa Cruz. He owns his own farm plot where he grows various products like corn, manioc, peanut, bean and potato. He’s single and goes to school Saturdays from 8am to 6pm. His parents help him do his work.
He will use the funds to buy potato seed because planting season is now; once harvested he will sell in the area market to increase his working capital.
One of his dreams is to complete his studies in order to improve his quality of life.
He’s a responsible, hard-working young man who very much wants to succeed.
He is grateful to Emprender and to Kiva for the trust placed in him by granting the loan.
