Marcelino's story

Marcelino is a humble and hardworking 27-year-old young man, who is a farmer in his village.

Most of the time he is doing his daily activities by planting and looking after his vegetables. After the vegetables are grown, he usually harvests them and then transports them to local markets to sell. He has been growing and selling vegetables for many years now with his own working capital.

He previously took a loan for his general store and is now requesting a loan of $300 from KIF to help with his agricultural activity. Every day he is busy with farming because he makes a living from it. Marcelino will use this loan to buy more manure, fertilizer and some new farming equipment in order to increase his farming productivity.
