Elida's story

Mrs Elida P. is a 58-year-old widow with two daughters. One of her daughters is married while the other, who is 17 years old, currently lives at home. This daughter is in high school, and Mrs Elida pays for her education. Mrs Elida is a selfless person, who works selling fruits and vegetables from her cart. She goes to Abasto market herself to buy her merchandise and transports it back on the bus. She also has her own small convenience store in her house, which her daughter attends to when she goes out to sell her goods.


Mrs Elida would like to say thank you for the loans she has received from Kiva partner, Fundación Paraguaya. Her business is growing and so is her clientele.
