A loan helped to launch his own business, a pig farm.
Luis David's story
San Miguel de los Bancos, the canton of love, is located in the northwest region of the Pichincha province. The canton is a tourist attraction that is heavily visited due to its vast amount of wild flora and fauna. It is a perfect place to relax, with its warm and humid climate, and its kind and hardworking people. Luis lives in this in this canton. He is a young worker of few means. He was not able to continue with his studies because he had to start working as a bus driver and he no longer has much free time. He is single and lives in his family's home. He is seeking a loan to invest in a pig farm. This is a very productive business of which he knows a lot. He learned this business with his parents. He will dedicate about 4 hours a day to this business. With this investment, he will improve his income and have the ability to continue with his education. Luis is grateful for Fundación Alternative and Kiva for the support and the opportunity to improve his quality of life and have a better future.
