Elida Luz's story

Elida is a hardworking woman, lives with her husband who supports everything she undertakes and is her right hand. Her home is located in the city of Ica, a city characterized by warm weather any time of the year. It is also a city that develops agriculture, especially the cultivation of cotton, asparagus, and paprika among others. In this city, there is also an attraction, "The Huacachina lagoon" and also the Temple of the Señor de Luren, whose feast is in October. Enthusiastically Elida works every day in her business of renting construction machinery. She works in her business about 5 hours and can assistant up to 2 clients per day. She believes that it does well because she is friendly with the customers and their machinery is always in good condition. Elida is very grateful with the Kiva borrowers since this is the second time that they offer their valuable help and with it she can buy a roto hammer. With this improvement she will have more machinery and can improve her income and provide a good service to clients. She will continue to work every day to fulfill her greatest dream: "Build your House of noble material".
