Daniel's story

Daniel’s a 23-year-old man living in the city of Pucallpa with his wife and little boy who he loves and are the main reason for living. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic man who focuses all his efforts into moving his family forward. Thanks to his efforts, Daniel was able to study a technical career which has been very useful for him to work. He likes to spend pleasant moments with his family in his free time and sometimes invites them to enjoy a delicious “Pollo a la Brasa” which is his favorite dish.

On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Daniel works as a slot machine operator in his city; he works every day on 8-hour rotating shifts. Daniel feels good working and thinks he does well because he’s very responsible and treats others well.

Daniel is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to buy a mototaxi that will be very useful for him because he’ll be able to have an additional job providing transportation services in his city and he can continue working and striving towards reaching his great dream of owning a house and to be able to get ahead with his family.
