Eladia Efemia's story

Eladia, 24, is a young woman living in the city of Nazca that’s noted for having a hot, welcoming climate. Agriculture, especially growing prickly pears, corn and cotton, among others is also notable here. One of the most popular year-round tourist sites is also found here: the Nazca Lines. When she has free time available she likes to watch television very much but what she likes most is enjoying one of her favorite dishes, the very delicious “Lomo Saltado.” [Steak sautéed in Olive Oil with Onions and Tomatoes served over French Fries and Rice.]

With much enthusiasm, Eladia works as a pharmacy technician in a pharmacy in her city. She works around 8 hours daily and can tend to up to 15 customers daily. She believes she does well in her business because she’s very responsible and above all attentive to her customers.

Eladia is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given her she will be able to make some home improvements since she will repair cracked walls and improve the windows which will improve her and her family’s quality of life and she will continue working every day towards making her greatest dream a reality: to have her own pharmacy.
