Cruz Elena's story

Elena is 67 years old. She lives in Gualchan, a community in the canton of Mira and the province of Carchi. Elena is a widow. She is currently living with her sister, who keeps her company and helps her with the farming. Elena is very optimistic and has the experience necessary for agriculture. From the time she was young, her parents taught her this work.

Elena has crops of fruit trees, such as oranges and lemons. Depending on the season, she also plants beans. These businesses have allowed her to have the income necessary to cover her expenses, especially food and household expenses.

Elena needs resources to plant beans. She is grateful to Kiva for the help they provide her since, with their help, she will be able to continue generating resources to survive.
