A loan of $725 helped to buy a motorcycle.


Hugo Jean Carlos Yorgo's story

Hugo is a hard working young man and above all is eager to get ahead. He is 19 years old and lives in the city of Chincha, a town which is characterized by a warm and welcoming climate and which also has beautiful beaches and is home to grand glories of Peruvian sports. Its residents have a knack for preparing dishes; their food is delicious and above all, they display contagious joy.

When Hugo has a bit of free time, he loves to watch TV, but sometimes he also likes to eat one of his favorite dishes, which is the delicious “Chaufa rice with fried wonton”.

Every day, Hugo works as a laborer in a mechanic's shop. He works approximately 6 hours a day and in the afternoons he studies at the university. He believes that he is doing well in his job because he is very responsible and, above all, he has much desire to get ahead.

Hugo is very grateful to Kiva investors, because, thanks to their help, he can buy a motorcycle to commute to his place of work. His home is located in a remote area and having a motorcycle allows him to make savings and to keep working towards the realization of his great dream: "To complete his career and have his own house."
