Elva
Elva is 34 years old and is married to Rosendo, who is a merchant marine. They live together comfortably in their own house. Elva works selling hardware store merchandise, including pipes, adhesive, iron, etc. To this end, she has established a shop inside her house. She gets all her merchandise from another city and sells it at competitive prices, earning the loyalty of her customers. Her customers then recommend her to others and in this way she has established a good clientele.

Her business started more than 5 years ago and she considers it very fruitful due to the demand for her goods. Before starting her business, she didn't have her own source of income. For this reason, she decided to start working in this field and generate her own income. Looking back on her success, she now desires to increase the amount of goods she sells and expand her business.

This is her 7th Kiva loan. She hopes to use this partnership to put her plans into action. For her part, she promises to make her payments on time.

With the amount requested (1000 sols or US$375), she will buy hardware store merchandise such as pipes, adhesive, cement, and other things.
