Edwin David's story

Edwin is 26 years old. He is single and lives in the city of Chincha with his parents and siblings. He is a kind, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who has a great desire to succeed. Unfortunately, due to lack of financial resources and the need to work, Edwin could not study for a career in Civil Engineering but he wanted to.

On his own initiative, Edwin works as a mason, working at diverse building sites and he works approximately 10 hours a day. Edwin believes he is doing well because of his dedication.

Edwin is very grateful to Kiva lenders as thanks to the support he can improve and strengthen a room in his home so that his family will have better security and wellbeing, and so he can continue working and struggling to achieve his big dream of having his own home.
