David Edison
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.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
