Gerardo Daniel's story

Gerardo is a 23-year-old, single young man. He lives in the city of Ica along with his parents and siblings. Gerardo is a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who dreams of excelling. Thanks to his hard work and the support of his parents, Gerardo is currently studying Economics in the university. In his free time, he likes to play soccer with his friends. On special occasions, he also enjoys cooking the delicious Arroz con Pollo (a typical Peruvian dish with chicken and rice) for his family.

By his own initiative and with much hard work and dedication, Gerardo works each day as a taxi driver. He works 10-hour days and believes that it has gone so well for him because he knows the area well and knows where to find the most passengers. Gerardo is very grateful for the opportunity this Kiva loan presents. It will help him to buy construction materials, which will be very useful to him as he works with his father siblings finish building the back part of their house. This will give them more security and improve their well-being.

Gerardo will continue working hard to achieve his dream of becoming a professional and thus, be able to get ahead.
