Virgilio's story

Virgilio is 37 years old and married with 2 children. He is a fisherman. He has been selling the fish he catches to make an income for 8 years. Running his business has made Virgilio independent and has helped him provide a better life for his family.

He would like a loan of 600 USD from KIF to grow his fishing business. He plans to use this loan to buy trawling materials and fish crates for fishing. Virgilio hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
