A loan helped to buy more manure and some new farming equipment in order to grow more crops in the next harvest.


Antoninho's story

Antoninho works in agriculture, mainly growing strawberries on his farm. After the strawberries ripen, he harvests and brings them to the market to sell. He has been planting strawberries for a year now with his own working capital.

Antoninho is requesting a loan of $600 through KIF to help him improve his farming business. Every day, he is planting and looking after his strawberries because he makes a living from it, earning a good income for his loving family. He plans to use this loan to buy more manure and some new farming equipment in order to grow more crops in the next harvest.
