A loan of $5,250 helped to pay for his technical studies in industrial electronics.

Darvin's story

Darvin was born in Bagua in the northern jungle of Peru. His parents were killed at the hands of natives of the region in an attack when he was very young. Nearly everyone in the village died that day. Miraculously, he survived. He now lives with his aunt (his mother's sister) and her husband. They have raised him since then and love him like a son.

He studies industrial electronics at a technical institute. He is very excited to finish his degree and become a professional. However, this will not be possible without the support of Kiva lenders, because he does not have the necessary financial resources to accomplish his goal at this time.

He believes that education is the first step and a fundamental stepping stone to achieve development in any region.

Darvin considers himself to be a fighter and he knows that he will succeed. He is very grateful for all of the help which Kiva lenders can offer him to finish his studies and help his new family.
