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

A loan helped to buy pigs for his livestock business.

Mariano's story

Mariano is 36 years old and married, with three children. He has a livestock business that he started in 2019 and sells pigs to generate income to support his family. Running his livestock business has made him independent and helped provide a better life for his family.

He would like a loan of $400 from KIF to help grow his livestock business. He plans to use this loan to buy pigs for his livestock business, pigs to raise and then sell at a higher price.

Mariano hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
