A loan of $1,100 helped to buy building materials.


Jorge Luis's story

Jorge is a humble laborer in his area of the city. Thanks to his job, he can get along and above all, help pay for the household expenses. He works about nine hours a day and believes that he is doing well at work because he is a responsible worker. Jorge is grateful for the support provided by Kiva and thanks to their help he will be able to buy building material such as cement, bricks and other things to make improvements to his home. This will provide him with a safe house which will let him continue to work hard to fulfill his dream “to study at University”.
