Elvis's story

Elvis is an enterprising man. He is 48-years old, married and lives in Irazola with his family. Elvis's main motivation in life is his family. It is for them that he constantly works hard- to offer them better opportunities and to improve their quality of life. For the last two years, Elvis has made his living in agriculture. His main crop is bananas. Farming has been going well for Elivs because he is a very responsible, hard-working, innovating person and, above all, because he always sells high-quality products at prices that are accessible to his customers. Elvis is grateful for the Kiva lenders because, with the help they have offered him, he will be able to clear his fields of weeds to later update them with a corn crop. He will then be able to earn a greater income by selling his products and, little by little, save for expanding his plantings and offering his family a better future.
