Jacinta's story

Jacinta is 49 years old and married with four children.She has a livestock business that she started in 2012 and sells goats to generate income to support her family. Running her livestock business has made Jacinta independent because she can be responsible for herself and also provide a better life for her family.She would like a loan of $1,200 from KIF to help grow her livestock business. She plans to use this loan to buy goats for her livestock business. Jacinta hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity. She is happy with this loan because it helps to improve her living condition in the future. It is a second loan and her first loan is already repaid.
