A loan of $725 helped to buy merchandise for his business.


Gilberto David's story

Gilberto lives in the city of Huaraz. He is 40 years old, and lives with his wife and 2 children. Gilberto is a hardworking man which is why he puts a lot of effort into his business every day selling clothing as the earnings from this business pay for the household expenses through his struggles.

Gilberto is very grateful to the Kiva lenders as thanks to the help they have provided he can buy more merchandise for his business such as polo shirts, sweaters, and more, so he can have a better variety of products and continue fighting in order to achieve his greatest dream: “Providing for his children to become professionals.”
