Jorge's story

Jorge is 50 years old and is a hard-working and determined man. He is also happy and cordial with people. He is married to Emerla who is the mother of his only son. Together they are comfortably living in their own home. The work that Jorge does is the service of health care. For that reason he built a store in the interior of his home where he installed a pharmacy. He serves his customers in a kind and cordial manner, offering them sales for their preferences, and in that way he has been growing his business. He began his business five years ago with his own capital and with the support of his wife they have served customers. Before beginning this business he could not count on his own income and was only able to study, and with the help of his wife he decided to begin this work activity with the desire to be a prosperous businessman and to support household expenses. This will be his second loan with KIVA and he thanks the lenders for the financial support given in order to help him get ahead. He promises to comply with the repayment plan in a punctual manner. With the requested loan of 3000 Nuevos Soles (Peruvian currency), he will buy medicines for his pharmacy, as well as furniture for the reception area for the comfort of his clients.
