A loan of $375 helped to buy animals such as cows and pigs.

Bonifacio's story

Bonifacio, a humble, 64 year old farmer, grows corn, beans and wheat. He is a Kiva customer and is very grateful for his first loan, which he was able to invest in supplies such as fertiliser and to pay for labour for sowing the land. Doing this, he was able to increase his harvest and earn more from his sown land. Because of this, Bonifacio is applying for a second loan, to buy animals such as cows and pigs. He thinks this loan would help him to buy animals that he can later sell on at a better price and earn more for his business. He then aims to keep investing in his sown land and move forward with his family. His next goal is to be able to pay back this loan so that he can later come back to apply for another one.
