A loan of $400 helped to paint his home.


Daniel Melchor's story

Daniel, 44, lives in the city of Nazca with his two young children, whom he loves and are his main reason for loving. He is a very friendly, hard-working, and enthusiastic person, who puts all his efforts into advancing his children, since he is father and mother to them. Unfortunately, due to a lack of resources and needing to work, Daniel was unable to study a professional degree, but he would like to have done so. In his free time, he likes to relax and listen to a little music, and sometimes he cooks a delicious roast chicken to share with his family. On his own initiative, with a lot of effort and dedication, Daniel works providing security services in a municipal business in his city. He works every day, starting early in the morning, and he may work for eight hours. He is comfortable in his work and believes that it is going well for him because of his good performance and responsibility. Daniel is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help, he will be able to paint his home. Currently, the walls of his home have saltpeter and this is affecting his childrens' health. Daniel will continue to work and strive to achieve his dream of giving his children a good education.
