Emilia's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy more chickens to raise at her small livestock business.

Emilia's story

Emilia is 46 years old and has been working in this business for many years now. She raises livestock (mostly chickens) and started this business with her own capital. Emilia spends every day looking after her chickens by providing them with adequate food and water. When the chickens are mature, she sells them at the local market so that she can generate income for her loving family.

Emilia has previously borrowed and re-payed all of her loan with a good habit of paying on time and now, she would like a loan in the amount of $1,500 (USD) from Kaebauk Investimentu No Finansas to help improve her business. She will use the loan to buy more chickens to raise.

She would like to thank the lenders for this opportunity.
