Elmer's story

Elmer is a 48-year-old, married man with four children, one of whom is still attending. Twelve years ago, he started running a rice mill. He is serving mostly neighbors and nearby residents. His wife works as a store keeper.

He is a hard worker who is trying desperately to develop his business, but he is also a sacrificing father who deprives himself for the sake of his children. He has requested a loan from Kiva's field partner CEVI to invest in equipment and pay for maintenance.

He has high hopes that through this loan, he will able to boost his existing project and improve the family's living conditions.
