A loan of $775 helped to build a room in his parents' home.

Branco Daniel's story

Branco is an 18-year-old man. He is single and lives together with his parents and siblings in the city of Chincha. In spite of his young age, he is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person who has great aspirations and a great desire to support his family. Unfortunately, owing to his need to work and support his parents with the household expenses, Branco was not able to study for a degree. However, he still dreams of studying for a degree in industrial engineering. In his free time he enjoys playing soccer with his brothers and friends and he sometimes cooks a delicious 'carapulcra con sopa seca' to share with his family.

With a lot of commitment and enthusiasm, and thanks to his parents' support, Branco works daily as a salesman in a candy company in his city. He works approximately ten hours a day and feels happy in his work as his bosses value him because of his good work and friendly treatment of others.

Branco is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their help, he will be able to build a room out the back of his parents' home. This will give him a bedroom of his own. Because he has a number of siblings, in the past they have always shared the same bedroom. He would like to provide his family with a little more security, well-being and comfort and in the not-so-distant future he hopes to completely finish building work on his parents' home.
