A loan of $600 helped to buy chairs and fabric.


Jorge Luis's story

Jorge is a 36-year-old man. He is single and lives in the city of Pisco. He is kind, hard working and enthusiastic, and has a big desire for self-improvement. Unfortunately, due to the lack of resources and the need to work from a young age, Jorge was unable to study for a degree in cooking which he would have really liked. In his spare time he likes to practice sport and he also cooks a delicious Cau Cau for his family from time to time.

With a lot of effort, dedication and with his mum's support, Jorge works daily in his small event decoration business. Jorge works from early in the morning and can work for about 12 hours. He feels at ease doing his job and he thinks he is doing well thanks to the kind and respectful way in which he treats his customers.

Jorge is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to this help he will be able to buy chairs and fabric for decorating tables, chairs and others. In this way, Jorge will be able to keep working and striving to reach his goal of expanding his business and providing for his family.
