Daniel Santos's story

In the district of Santiago, a district characterized by its large green-colored landscapes due to the farming that is developing in the zone, lives Daniel, who is 39 years old. He shares his life at the side of his wife with whom he has 2 children who are 15 and 11 years old, and for whom Daniel strives each day to be able to get ahead, since he wants a life with better opportunities than those that he had for them.

Day to day Daniel goes out to work with much optimism and above all happiness since according to him when one works with good humor and spirits everything goes well. Daniel has his small business selling newspapers from very early. He works in his business around 9 hours per day and believes that he is getting ahead because of his responsibility and above all because he serves his customers well.

Daniel is very deeply moved and grateful for the Kiva loans since with their great help he will be able to buy a motorbike to be able to distribute his newspapers. In this manner he will be able to serve his customers more promptly and improve his service. Thus he will be able to continue striving each day to improve and realize his greatest dream: "To be able to give his children a good education and to have a newspaper distributorship."
