Eladia Efemia
Eladia, 24, is a young woman living in the city of Nazca that’s noted for having a hot, welcoming climate. Agriculture, especially growing prickly pears, corn and cotton, among others is also notable here. One of the most popular year-round tourist sites is also found here: the Nazca Lines. When she has free time available she likes to watch television very much but what she likes most is enjoying one of her favorite dishes, the very delicious “Lomo Saltado.” [Steak sautéed in Olive Oil with Onions and Tomatoes served over French Fries and Rice.]

With much enthusiasm, Eladia works as a pharmacy technician in a pharmacy in her city. She works around 8 hours daily and can tend to up to 15 customers daily. She believes she does well in her business because she’s very responsible and above all attentive to her customers.

Eladia is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given her she will be able to make some home improvements since she will repair cracked walls and improve the windows which will improve her and her family’s quality of life and she will continue working every day towards making her greatest dream a reality: to have her own pharmacy.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
