Daniel's story

Daniel is a man of 43. He lives in the city of Nazca with his wife and his three children, whom he loves and who are his principal purpose in life. He is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person, who, together with his wife, dedicates all his efforts to advancing his family. Unfortunately, Daniel was not able to study for a career, but he very much would have like to be able to do so. In his free time, he likes to spend a little time reading, and sometimes, to spoil his wife, he cooks her favorite food, which is the delicious chicken with rice.

On his own initiative, and with much effort and enthusiasm, Daniel set up his little business of selling fruits and beverages such as carbonated beverages, soft drinks, and mineral water, among others. In addition, Daniel also works as a heavy machine operator in his city. He begins his work every morning at an early hour. He can work approximately 12 hours a day, and he believes it is going well for him because of his dedication and because of the friendly treatment he offers his customers.

Daniel is very thankful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help offered he will be able to purchase merchandise such as fruits and beverages, in addition to tables and chairs to outfit his business. In this way Daniel will have a better stocked and equipped business. With it he hopes to increase his sales and his income, with which in the not-too-distant future he wants to expand his business. Thus he will continue working and exerting himself to advance his family.
