Daniel, 27, is a resident of Pucallpa (“red earth” in Quechua), which is located on the bank of the Ucayali River in the Amazon rainforest of Peru.
Currently, Daniel works for the provincial government and recently completed his post-secondary studies in administration and accounting. Daniel’s main focus and goal is to rise in the ranks within the government, something that he cannot achieve until he is officially granted his university degree. To finally receive his degree, Daniel must pay additional fees, which is why he is taking out this loan. He is extremely grateful to Kiva lenders for their support, as it motivates him to continue working hard to achieve his goals and become a successful professional.
