Jorge's story

Jorge is 57 years old, married, and lives in his own home with his wife and two grandchildren, Jorge is a very hardworking man and makes a living selling food products. As a supplemental activity, he provides transportation services on his mototaxi.

Jorge started his grocery store when he decided to sell his two mules. He invested the money that he made by purchasing some products. Now, he works with loans that help him to continue to grow his business.

A problem that he faced before he started his business was the death of his son, which deeply affected him emotionally. After a few months, he overcame it because he wanted to move forward with his grandchildren.

Thanks to this business, he improved his family's quality of life. This is his first Kiva loan and he is grateful for the financial support that he has received to move forward. He promises to make his monthly payments on time. With the loan of 1,500 nuevos soles, Jorge will buy food products like rice, sugar, milk, etc.
