Elqui Ismael's story

Elqui is a young man of 23 and lives in the city of Guadalupe, which is noted for having a warm and inviting climate. As well, agriculture is carried on there, especially the cultivation of rice, lemons, and other crops.

Elqui has a contagious charm and above all, he strives each day to succeed and help his parents. Every day, Elqui works as a farmer on his small parcel of land. Currently he has planted rice and corn.

Elqui believes he is getting ahead in life because he is responsible, and especially because he has a great desire to succeed for the sake of his family.

He is very grateful to the Kiva lenders for the support they have provided, as thanks to it he will be able to buy seeds, manure and fertilizers. This way he will be able to plant a new crop and maintain it in good condition. He will be able to have a better harvest, improve his income, and thereby his family's quality of life.

Elqui will continue striving to make his greatest dream a reality: "to study for university degree."
