A loan helped to buy more young goats to raise to sell at the local market when they are older.


Miguel's story

Miguel 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 the zone because it is an easy way to earn money for the family.

Miguel has been making a living from it since he first started and it has been really helpful for his family's income as well.

He would like a loan of $1,000, through KIF, to help him to improve his business of selling animals. He will use this loan to buy more young goats to raise to sell at the local market when they are older.

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