Jorge Luis
Jorge, 40, is single living in the city of Nazca. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who very much wants to improve. Unfortunately, Jorge was unable to study agronomy because he had to start working very young to help his parents but he would have liked to do so very much. In his free time he enjoys watching educational television programs and on occasion cooks a delicious “Escabeche de Pollo” to share with his family.

With much effort and dedication and on his own initiative, Jorge works in agriculture. He has a small parcel of land that he leases to grow his lima bean and corn crops. He starts work very early in the morning every day. He can work up to ten hours daily and believes he does well because of his experience and because of the dedication he puts in to his work.

Jorge is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to do crop maintenance: irrigating, fertilizing and weeding. Jorge hopes this way that his corn crop will develop adequately so that he can sell his harvest well and he can continue working and striving to reach his great dream of owning his own land and expanding his crops.
