Luis Elvis
Luis is a 28 year old man. He lives in the city of Ica, in the district of Santiago, with his wife and his two young children, whom he loves and they are his reason for living. He is a very friendly person, hardworking and enthusiastic. He and his wife put all their efforts together to bring up the family. Unfortunately, because of a lack of financial resources and the need to work from an early age, Luis could not study in the field of agriculture. In his free time he enjoys spending time on his small plot of land and sometimes he cooks a tasty barbecue to share with his family.

On his own initiative, with a lot of effort and dedication, Luis works as a driver, providing a taxi service in his town. He works every day for about ten hours and thinks that it is going well because he knows the areas where there is high customer demand.

Luis is very grateful to Kiva lenders, and thanks to the provided help he can do general maintenance, painting and buying tires for his vehicle, so he can continue serving his customers, and so he can continue working and striving towards his big dream of moving ahead growing pecans on his small plot of land.
