Elias
Elias was born in December, 1987, in Villa Barrientos, 5 kilometers from Santa Rita. He now lives in Santa Cruz’s Pacay section and has his own parcel of land on which he farms various products like corn, manioc, peanuts, beans and potatoes. He’s single.

During the day he farms and in the evening he’s going to the state university in the city of Santa Cruz where he’s finishing up his Commercial Engineering degree. His parents support his efforts.

He will use the money to increase his working capital from the loan to buy more potato seeds since this is planting season; once harvested he sells it in the local market.

One of his wishes is to finish his schooling to improve his quality of life. He’s a responsible, hard working young man with a drive to self improvement. He is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the trust placed in him by granting the loan.
