Elena's story

Elena is 52 years old and has been married for 36 years. She has 2 children who are already married and is proud of 3 grandchildren. She has dedicated her life to the children and invested in their education. But now, when the children are married, Elena wants to live for herself.

She has health problems with her spine and hands and, in order to maintain herself, she needs treatments and procedures every month. The doctors forbade her to lift weights, but she has to bring water from the well far away from the house every day, as their house is not connected to water and sewage.

Elena dreams of connecting her house to water and sewage and has decided to apply for a KIVA loan in the hope she will realize her dream and make her life easier.
