Darwin Carlos's story

Darwin is an 18 year old, single young man who lives in the town of Pucallpa with his parents and brothers. He is a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who has a strong desire to achieve. Thanks to his effort and the support of his parents, Darwin was able to study a technical degree. In his free time, he likes to dedicate a little time to reading and occasionally cooks a delicious rice and chicken dish to share with his family. Though his own initiative and a lot of determination, Darwin works day by day as a resource assistant at a business in his town. From the early hours when his labor begins, he can work for approximately eight hours daily and believes it goes very well because of his good performance and because he is very responsible.

Darwin feels very grateful to the loaners at Kiva. Thanks to the help they have provided him, he will complete the purchase of summer garnmets and footwear for ladies, gentlemen, and children. In this way, Darwin will begin a small clothing and footwear business. He hopes it goes very well so that, little by little, he can expand his business and achieve his his dream of having his own house.
