A loan of $400 helped to buy potato seed.


Elias's story

Elias, 33, is married and has 4 school-age children. He has lived and worked in Surutu, which is 41 kilometers west of El Torno, for 21 years. He and his wife work together farming corn, rice, peanuts and potatoes.

He has collaborated with EMPRENDER for 4 years because of the easy payment terms.

Elias is a responsible person; he never had any problems repaying his loans. He is very hard-working and is looking for other products to plant on his lands because, with four children to raise, sometimes income isn't sufficient and he has to find ways to provide sustenance for his family.

The funds will be used to buy potato seed because now is planting season.

He is grateful to Emprender and to Kiva for the trust placed in him by granting the loan.
