Porfirio Bonifacio's story

Porfirio Bonifacio Hernández is 57 years old and lives in the neighbourhood of Palestina, located in the municipality of Ticuantepe. He lives with his wife who works as a shopkeeper to help them with home expenses. They have eleven children, four of whom are already independent and seven that they care for, all of whom study. In their free time they help him with agricultural chores. The family's plans are to improve their living conditions, as in the future they would like to extend their house. Mr. Porfirio has worked in agriculture for forty years, as his parents supported him with the land and jobs for his children. He thanks Kiva's partner institution for approving his fourth loan, which he will invest in supplies and fertilisers so he can obtain a good harvest and repay his loan on time.
