Elvis's story

Elvis, single and 33 years old, lives with his parents in the hamlet of El Mirador, Las Pirias, Peru. It is there that he works in agriculture, specifically coffee. He also diversifies his income by working as a day laborer on other plots.

Elvis will invest this loan in weeding, pruning, and to buy organic fertilizers, increasing and improving the quality of his coffee crop for future harvests. In that way, he will make better earnings which will allow him to improve the quality of life of his parents.
