A loan of $200 helped to do some home improvements.


Jorge Sergio's story

Jorge is a 21-year-old single man living in the city of Ica with his parents and siblings. He’s a very kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who has a strong desire for self-improvement. Sadly, due to the lack of economic resources and the need to start working to support his family, Jorge has been unable to study a professional career. In his free time he enjoys watching movies and sometimes cooks a delicious Tallarín Saltado [stir-fried noodles] to share with his family.

On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Jorge works as a stock clerk in a mini-mart in his city. He works every day starting very early in the morning and works for about 10 hours. Jorge feels good doing his work and believes that he does well because of his good work habits and the kind way he treats others.

Jorge is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided he will be able to do some home improvements because during winter and the rainy season he wants to buy building supplies to repair the roof. In this way, Jorge will provide better security and well-being for his family and he can continue to work and strive to reach his great dream of owning his own commercial business.
