A loan of $1,525 helped to build a fence.


Jorge Rudy's story

Jorge is 37 years old. He lives with his wife, with whom he has a precious 5 year old son who is very playful and naughty. Jorge loves him very much despite the fact that he drives him crazy, but he is the best gift that god has given him. His home is located in Chincha, a city that is characterized by its warm and welcoming climate. It has beautiful beaches and is also the cradle of the big glories of Peruvian sport. Its people are very cheerful and well known for being gifted in making delicious food. In his spare time, Jorge likes to stroll in the city with his family, above all because it is a moment to come together and share. He also likes to take the opportunity to eat one of his favorite dishes such as the very tasty Pachamanca, a baked meat dish. Due to the lack of economic resources, he only studied through high school but he would very much like to study for a university degree. Day in and day out, Jorge runs a vulcanizing business and has been doing this for 4 years. He works about 9 hours a day and can serve 15 customers in a day. He believes that his business is doing well because he is very friendly and always does good work. As a result, his customers always recommend him. Jorge is very grateful for the Kiva loans because, thanks to the help that has been offered to him, he will be able to build a fence at his house and also improve the walls as they are cracked. In this way, he will have a safer house to give a better quality of life to his family. He will be able to keep working towards completing his greatest goal: to finish building his house from good materials and to have a workshop in his home so he doesn't have to pay rent.
