Jorge Luis
Jorge, 59, lives in the city of Ica. He is a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who dedicates all of his efforts towards achieving success.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and the need to start working at a very young age, Jorge was unable to study a professional degree in Law as he would have liked to. In his free time, he likes to distract himself by watching television, and he sometimes cooks a delicious Seco de Pollo (chicken stew) to share with his family.

By his own initiative and with plenty of effort and dedication, Jorge works in construction as a builder and painter. He works every day for about 10 hours per day, and he believes that his work is going well due to his good details and finishings, as well as the friendly manner in which he treats his clients.

Jorge is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, because thanks to their help he will be able to buy tools such as buckets, brushes, and hammers, among others. Jorge will then have the necessary tools to continue offering his services. Little by little, he hopes to achieve his greatest dream of having his own house.
