A loan helped to buy pigs, animal feed, and wood.


Elva Olga's story

Elva is 50 years old and has one son. Following the recent earthquake in Ecuador, the house where Elva lived with her son suffered serious damage and so they are now living in a tent outside the house.

Elva's pig business made financial losses, and her animals were stolen. Elva and her husband work in farming and raising animals.

Elva will use this loan from Fundacion Espoir to buy pigs, animal feed, and wood to build a hen coop and sell both live hens, and slaughtered animals.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Iain Gaw.
