A loan of $1,150 helped to buy supplies.


Jorge's story

Jorge, 58, is single and a very well-known person in his community because of his work in metal carpentry. He lives with his 26-year-old daughter and they help each other out in the business and in her goals. He has good references and lives in a community dedicated to commerce, agriculture and animal husbandry. He has provided metal carpentry services for 12 years in the Cayalti zone in northern Perú.

Jorge has always been noted for being a very hardworking, forward-looking person. Because of this he’s looking for a Kiva-supported loan at Edpyme Alternativa that Jorge will use to buy more supplies and spare parts (iron, solder, adhesives, oxygen and others) to stock his business and for his sales thus meeting unmet local demand. He will enlarge his customer base adding new customers that will produce additional family income.
