Jorge Luis's story

Jorge, 18, is a young man living in the city of Chincha with his parents and siblings. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person with a strong drive for self-improvement. Thanks to his efforts he succeeded in completing his secondary education satisfactorily. Now, he dreams with studying the career of Veterinary Medicine. In his free time he enjoys playing soccer with his friends and sometimes cooks a delicious ‘Carapulcra con Sopa Seca’ to share with his family.

On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Jorge works as a field hand on an agricultural estate in his city. He works every day starting in the very early hours of the morning and can work for about 8 hours daily. He feels good doing his work and thinks he does well because of the good work he does and the kind way he treats others.

Jorge is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to buy building materials and supplies like lumber, matting, plastic, beams, etc. that will be very useful for him to do some home improvements since the façade on his house is currently of matting and not very secure. He will thus be able to continue working and striving to continue forward alongside his family and to become a good professional.
