Alexandrinho's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy trawling materials and fish crates for fishing.
Alexandrinho is 40 years old and married with 5 children. He is a fisherman, and has been selling the fish he catches to make an income for 14 years. Running his business has made Alexandrinho independent and helped him provide a better life for his family. He would like a loan of $600 from KIF to grow his fishing business. He plans to use this loan to buy trawling materials and fish crates for fishing. and hopes to see an upswing in the number of fish he can catch as a result. Alexandrinho hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
