Daniel Jesus's story

Daniel comes from a home where his parents were separated. He currently lives with his mother and his two younger siblings. They haven't had any news from the father back home, as he doesn't support the family, not even the two younger boys who are still minors. His mother works as a traveling salesperson, selling clothing through the streets. This is the family's only income. She's worked hard so that her oldest child, Daniel, could continue with his schooling, but now the money won't stretch. The support she received from her son's paid internship has run out now that the work has ended. Daniel is enrolling in his last term in his Industrial Design program, and he's just months from graduating. Nevertheless, it won't be possible without the support of Kiva lenders.

Daniel is anxious to finish his schooling so that he can start working and help his mother and brothers. He's the oldest of the three children, and he wants to set a good example for the younger ones, encouraging them to stay in school and work hard to get ahead. Daniel is confident and grateful to the Kiva lenders for their support of his education, and in this particular case, this final push that he needs to finish his schooling successfully.
