Jacob's story

Jacob is an enterprising young man who works as an East Timor traditional palm wine maker. Every day, Jacob works at his activity, making traditional wine at his village. After the wine is ready to drink, he collects it in drums and then sells it at the local market. He has been making a living from selling wine for many years now with his own working capital.

Now he is requesting a $500 loan through KIF to help with his traditional wine-making activity. He will use this loan to buy more ingredients and firewood for the cooking pot and some other ingredients, in order to make traditional palm wine.
