A loan of $400 helped to service his motorcycle.

Jorge Santos's story

Jorge, 38, is a man living in the city of Ica. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person with a strong wish for self-improvement. Unfortunately, due to limited economic resources and because he needed to work, he was unable to study a professional career but he very much would have liked to do so. In his free time he enjoys playing soccer with his friends and sometimes cooks a delicious “Arroz con Pollo” to share with his family.

On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Jorge works as a laborer for a local recycling firm. He works every day starting very early and works about 8 hours daily. He feels good at work and thinks he does well because of the good way he does his work and the kind treatment he gives others.

Jorge is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to repair and service his motorcycle which will be very useful for him to get to and from work and he will continue working and striving towards getting ahead and reaching his dream of owning a house.
