A loan of $975 helped to buy cattle.

Rafael's story

Rafael first went to Afodenic so that he could become a borrower for Kiva loans because he needed to buy cattle to increase his herd and sell cows at a higher price so he can have a more substantial income. In this way, he strives and fights everyday to give his family the best. He family is comprised of his wife, himself, and their 3 children, although their children are now grown-up and have their own families. But his family helps him on the farm which is the workplace and source of income for them all. Through much sacrifice, Rafael has improved his land which he inherited from his father. Thanks to his own efforts, he has increased his land little by little with the profits from selling milk, root vegetables, and livestock. This is how he earns his daily bread and offers his family the best.
