Jorge Luis's story

Jorge Luis is 36 years old and separated; he has one 10 year old son and lives with his parents in the San Luis area-close to the city of Chiclayo, a city well-known in the north for its business industry.

For more than 4 years, he has had a car that he uses as a taxi for public transport in the city of Chiclayo and surrounding areas. This is his only source of income and thanks to it, he has been able to meet his personal expenses and help his son as well as helping meet the household expenses.

Jorge Luis is asking for a loan of 1300 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva’s field partner) that he will use to pay taxes and other necessary procedures to renew his working license and be able to move around the city legally. By making the necessary paperwork, he will be able to give reliable and quality service so that his work won’t be interrupted by inspector officials.

Jose Luis is a hardworking man that spends most of his days working, his biggest wish is to get ahead and to have a more stable job so that he can have more income that will allow him a better quality of life for the people that he loves. He has worked with our institution before and has shown to be punctual and responsible when making his payments.
