Rafael Antonio's story

Rafael is a humble pitaya farmer from Masaya, La Concepción. He lives together with his wife and children. They are a very united family and they all work the land in order to provide suitable care for each pitaya plant. Rafael's plans for his family are to improve their quality of life and to turn their humble home into a decent house for the entire family.

For many years, Rafael has been working the land that his dad gave him to grow crops on. The biggest problem that he faces is that he doesn't have enough money to buy fertilizers and the supplies he needs for his crops. He feels very grateful for the helping hand that he receives from Afodenic, through Kiva. There are many farmers who receive the support they need to grow good-quality crops and, above all, to obtain the full natural flavor from their pitaya.
