Eladio Maximo's story

Eladio is a 52-year old man who has learned how to get ahead alone with his daughter. They are very honorable people and are always thinking of a way of continuing to progress. His daughter Noemi is his loyal companion; they are always together and have been searching for a way to earn enough money to have the food they need.

After so many years together, Eladio and Noemi have learned much concerning managing a business. At present, Eladio is selling drinks, together with his daughter, from 9:00 am until 11:00 at night, during which time they struggle hard, dedicating themselves to their business. To be able to have more income, Eladio also sells seasonal fruit. His daughter has learned much from her efforts and desire to progress. That is why this young girl of 18 also sells cosmetics.

In these moments, this small and inspiring family needs help from Kiva investors to buy more drinks to sell. They understand that this means progress since their business has succeeded due to their good customer service and the enthusiasm they demonstrate with each sale.
