Jorge Armando's story

Jorge is 30 years old and lives in the city of Ica with his two young children, whom he loves and who are the main reason in his life. He is very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic, and he devotes all his efforts to get his children ahead, because he is a father and a mother to them. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and the need to work to support himself, Jorge couldn't study the career of Agricultural Engineering, but he would have liked it so much. In his spare time, he likes to play soccer with his friends and sometimes he cooks a delicious fried rice to share with his family.

On his own initiative, with hard work and dedication, Jorge works as a laborer in an agricultural farm of his city. He works every day from early in the morning and does it for about 10 hours. He feels good doing his job and believes he is doing well due to his responsibility and honesty. Jorge is very grateful to Kiva lenders, because thanks to the help they provide he will be able to buy a small kitchen and a refrigerator, which will be used to preserve and properly prepare his food. He will continue working and striving to achieve his dream of owning a home.
