Rufino Antonio's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to purchase two trammel nets and make repairs to his fishing vessel.


Rufino Antonio's story

With the help of his children, Rufino has kept his household going. He and his children together start fishing early in the morning and then sell their goods in the municipal market and in the streets of their community in the afternoon.

At his advanced age, Rufino has many goals in life and he believes that he can accomplish each one of them with a helping hand. Rufino already had a loan previously with these two organizations which he used to purchase nets and to repair the engine of his fishing vessel.

With the hope of increasing his catch, Rufino has again turned to loans granted by MiCrédito in conjunction with Kiva to buy two trammel nets and make repairs to his fishing vessel. In the next ten years, Rufino would like to have a new boat.
