Jorge Luis's story

Jorge is 41 years old, single, and lives in the city of Nazca. He is a kind, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who dedicates all of his efforts to getting ahead. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and the need to work since he was very young to help his parents, Jorge was not able to study agronomy like he wanted. In his free time, he likes to watch television and sometimes cooks a rich dish of marinated chicken to share with his family.

By his own initiative, with a lot of effort and thanks to the things his parents taught him, Jorge works in farming. He has a small piece of land where he plants corn. Jorge works every day for about 10 hours and he believes that it is going well because of his experience and the kind treatment he provides to everyone.

Jorge is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to their support, he will be able to cover the costs of irrigation, fertilization, and planting of his crop. In this way, Jorge will be able to assure the adequate growth of his crop so that he can continue working and making an effort in order to achieve his goal of expanding his crop.
