Jorge Arnaldo's story

Jorge, 43, is very hardworking, enthusiastic and totally devoted to his family. He lives in the city of Nazca with his beloved wife and two beloved children he enjoys playing soccer with in his free time and sometimes prepares a delicious “Pollo al Horno” to share a delicious lunch with his family.

Through his own initiative and with support from his wife, Jorge works in construction. He works as a master builder. He can work approximately 12 hours daily. Thanks to his talent and skills Jorge has good customers. He can tend to up to 5 customers monthly who always request construction jobs from him.

Jorge is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to buy lumber to be used in the construction jobs he does. He will also be able to buy tools like hammers, buckets and trowels, among others. In this way, Jorge will be able to increase his income and with it generate better wellbeing for his family insuring his children’s education since his great dream is to see his children become good professionals and upstanding citizens.
