Jorgo's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to help a sole, elderly, widowed member of the Egyptian community to make some repairs at his poor living condition house.

Jorgo's story

Jorgo is a sole, elderly, widowed member of the Egyptian community. He is retired and lives alone, his wife passed away two years ago and his two sons have emigrated to France, where they live with their families.

He has to work to make a living because his retirement pension is only $65/month, so he works as a night man in a gas station and sleeps during the day. "My routine is very simple, I wake up at 6:30 PM, eat something and I go to work till 7:00 AM the next day; I arrive home at 7:30 approximately, prepare something to eat, watch any news and after that I go to sleep at 9:00 AM!" said Jorgo with humility during the interview.

Jorgo is asking, for the first time, for a Kiva loan to make some repairs at his old and poor living condition house, he wants to change the toilet facilities, the fridge and the clothes washing machine.
