José Elías's story
Don José Elías is a 65 year old married gentleman and father. He lives in the Salales region, north of the town of El Sauce. Having lived for years in this small community, where life is very peaceful and the climate is very cool due to its elevation and the surrounding tree-covered mountains, he decided to open a mill in his home. There, inhabitants can come to grind corn for tortillas and other grains to make soft drinks. He has the advantage that his is the only business of its kind in this community. Don José Elias gets up at four in the morning to open the mill because this is the best hour for the merchants who make tortillas. At this time, he needs a loan to purchase a motor for his mill since the current one burned out so that he has fallen behind in providing this service to his customers. He hopes and trusts in God that Kiva and Ceprodel will support his request, so that he can continue working and striving, and he will be eternally grateful.
