Elias's story

Elías, 31, lives with Alieta with whom he has two dependent children attending primary school. Elías and his family live in his parents’ house. Elías completed primary school in a public school because his parents did not have sufficient resources so all their children could attend school which is why Elías decided to work when since he was young in various income generating activities.

At present, Elías’ main activity is exploiting rock quarries; he works Monday to Saturday starting at 5:30am. The requested loan is to service and repair his excavator which will make it possible to stay in business and in future to save up to buy a small piece of land for his house.
