David Rafael's story

David, 33, lives in the city of Pisco with his little three-year-old son who he loves and his main reason for living. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who focuses all his efforts into moving his little one forward. Thanks to his efforts, David was studying auto mechanics but sadly, due to lack of economic resources and the need to start working, he was unable to continue with his studies but he would have liked to have done so.

With much effort and dedication and thanks to his mother’s support, David works as a taxi driver providing transportation services. He also has a small grocery store at home. He works every day for about 12 hours and thinks he does well because of his good prices and the kind way he treats his customers.

David is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to convert his taxi to natural gas which will translate to savings for David when he stops using gasoline. In this way he will be able to continue striving and working towards reaching his great dream of owning a house.
