Helmer Porfirio's story

Helmer is a 54-year-old man who lives with his family in the city of Chiclayo, Guadalupe district. He is a hardworking and enthusiastic man, fighting to get ahead with his family. Unfortunately, due to the lack of resources and the need to work, he could not study to become a professional.

Helmer opened a small business selling alfalfa. He works every day for approximately ten hours and believes that he does well because of his hard work and dedication.

Helmer feels grateful to Kiva lenders. Thanks to their help, he will make some home improvements. He needs to reinforce the roof and install the floor, which will result in safety and well-being for his family.
