A loan of $975 helped to make improvements to his home.


David Edison's story

David is a single man of 28, who lives in the city of Ica. He is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who devotes all his energy to getting by. Unfortunately, as money was tight and he had to work from a very young age, David was unable to study Business Administration as he would have liked.

In his free time, he likes singing and occasionally cooks a delicious Seco de Pollo (chicken stew) to share with his family. David is employed as a salesman in a household appliance shop, where he works on his own initiative and with tremendous effort and commitment. He works for about 10 hours every day and believes that he is successful because of the way he performs his duties and the friendly way in which he treats others.

David is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, with their help, he can improve his home by fencing in the back of his house with resistant and secure materials. David will, therefore, continue to work and strive to realise his great ambition of being successful in his work.
