Unidos Por La Polvora Group's story

Elvis Yeison is 30 years old. He is a member of the group "Unidos por la Pólvora." This group is formed by seven members, and they chose the name because of the place where they live.

Elvis Yeison has been working for about three years giving private classes in mathematics. He has set up a space in his home where he gives classes to children in primary and secondary school and to some youths to help them in their pre-university preparation.

The loan that he receives will be invested in the purchase of materials such as marker pens for the board, books, and paper to develop exercises for his students.

In this group: Jeny Haydee, Rut Marlene, Octavio Mercedes, Edson Felipe, Yeny Magdalena, Elvis Yeison, Diana Carolina
