Jorge Alberto's story

Jorge's motives for requesting a Kiva loan are to improve his drainpipes, buy fertilizer and manure, and pay for laborers to apply these products to his crops. He wants to boost his business raising fish and growing crops, which has enabled him to get ahead and to provide financial stability for his wife and eight-year-old son.

Jorge lives in a post-conflict zone. With his good work he hopes to pay for his son's education and grow his business so that one day he can create permanent jobs and leave his land to his family. The loan presents a higher risk, given that he is located in a risk zone.
