Jorge Sergio
Jorge is a 21-year-old single man living in the city of Ica with his parents and siblings. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who has a strong desire for self-improvement. Sadly, due to the lack of economic resources and the need to start working to support his family, Jorge has been unable to study a professional career. In his free time he enjoys watching movies and sometimes cooks a delicious Tallarín Saltado [stir-fried noodles] to share with his family.

On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Jorge works as a stock clerk in a mini-mart in his city. He works every day starting very early in the morning and works for about 10 hours. Jorge feels good doing his work and believes that he does well because of his good work habits and the kind way he treats others.

Jorge is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to do some home improvements because during winter and the rainy season he wants to buy building supplies to repair the roof. In this way, Jorge will provide better security and well-being for his family and he can continue to work and strive to reach his great dream of owning his own commercial business.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
