A loan of $575 helped improve her house.


Elida's story

Elida is 37 years old and is living with her husband and 2 sons. Her house is equipped only with running water. It is located in Nueva Arica, in the province of Chiclayo in Northern Peru. She is a hard-working woman determined to progress and improve her living conditions and that of her family. As a result, she has a strategic mind. This is now the second loan she is taking with Edpyme Alternativa with the support of Kiva, given that the first one was successfully and punctually repaid. The primary business activities in the region are agriculture, farming, and tourism. Elida raises and sells livestock, mainly poultry, turkeys, ducks, and guinea pigs. The corrals where the livestock are kept are located in the rear section of her property. She feeds them a balanced diet and natural plants (alfalfa). When the livestock have reached an optimum size and weight she sells them at the different markets in the city of Chiclayo. After her first loan helped her to consolidate her business, Elida is now requesting a loan of 1500 nuevos soles to make updates to her house and improve the quality of the condition where her family lives. She has proven a very responsible person.
