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

A loan helped to buy more young pigs to raise on his farm to help improve his family's income.

Olandino's story

Olandino has been involved in business activities for many years now. He has a livestock business, which he first started with his own working capital. Raising and selling animals like cows, goats and pigs is a very common activity in his community because it is an easy way to earn money for the family.

Olandino has been making a living from his livestock business since he first started, and it is been really helpful for his family's income. He would like a loan of $1,500 through Kaebauk Investimentu no Finansas to help him improve his business. He will use this loan to buy more young pigs to raise and sell back at the local market when they are older.

As the result of this investment, he hopes to run a bigger business in the future. He would like to thank all the lenders for this opportunity.
