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

A loan helped to pay his education fee and print some school subjects.

Januario's story

Januario is 33 years old and single. He works at a government institution in his area and beside that he also attends university classes as well because working with the government you need to have at minimum a university degree. However, he is the backbone of his family (parents and siblings) and it is very difficult to pay for his university's fee due to the low income that his family has.

Regarding the matter, he is asking for a loan of $900 through KIF to support his university education so that he could still keep his job and if he has a high level of education he can get promoted as well. The loan will be used to pay his education fee and print some school subjects. Januario hopes to gain a university degree in the coming few years and wants to thank lenders for helping support his education.
