Elías Alberto
Elias is a 25 year old enterprising young man. He is single. He studied up to second year of high school, and only his parents depend on him. Elias is employed and also works growing corn and beans. He learned this from his father because since he was young he used to take him to the fields. He travels by bus to get to work, and it takes him one hour and 30 minutes to arrive. The loan he is requesting CrediCampo is to help his father with health issues because he is now sick. He is a son who is grateful for everything he has done for him in life, and therefore it is urgent that he helps him. Elias dreams of having his father get better and be able to work together to move forward.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of a project to help young men and women in El Salvador (under age 26) launch their own businesses. The field partner is reducing the guarantee for these individuals, who normally would not have access to loans due to their lack of experience. Unemployment for young people is high in El Salvador, a fact that motivates many of them to leave the country instead of searching for work. Aside from access to financing, clients will also be grouped together according to their business types to receive training from CrediCampo's social development unit, and to share advice and support with one another.
