David's story

David is a single man of 33, who lives in the city of Pucallpa. He is very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic and has a strong desire to succeed. Such is his diligence that David was able to gain a professional qualification in Systems Engineering. In his free time he likes listening to music and occasionally eats a delicious Arroz Chaufa (rice and vegetables) which is his favourite dish. Through his own initiative, tremendous effort and determination, David is a debt collection manager in a company in his city. He begins work every day in the early hours of the morning and can continue for around 8 hours. He enjoys his work and believes that he does well on account of the efficient way in which he discharges his responsibilities and the friendly way in which he treats others. David is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, with their help, he will be able to buy building materials which will be extremely useful in having his house's roof repaired now that the rainy season is beginning. As a result, he will be able to continue working and striving to achieve his great ambition of being successful and owning his own home.
