Elan Hector's story

Elan is 22 years old, he is single and he lives with his parents and his siblings in Camaná, a town famous of its hot climate and its beautiful beaches. Elan is a very hard-working and persevering man, and has a great sense of humor. In his free time he likes playing soccer with his friends and his brothers, and at times he like cooking the delicious “Seco de Pollo” (chicken stew) to share it with his family. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to study a professional career as he did not have enough money, but he dreams of succeeding in studying Agricultural Science.
Thanks to his enterprising spirit and to his family’s support Elan engages in agriculture: he owns a small plot of land where he grows beans, and he spends approximately 12 hours a day in his field. He enjoys his activity very much, as he has always liked working in the country.
Elans is grateful to Kiva lenders, as thanks to their help he will be able to buy manure and fertilizers to perform maintenance on his crops. This way, he will be able to sustain crop cultivation and increase his income in order to buy a motorcycle trailer for hauling water for his future crops. In this way he hopes to makes his dream come true and finally succeed in studying Agricultural Science, as this will allow his to help his family’s development.
