Jose's story

Jose is a fisherman living in Bobonaro municipality. Most of his daily income comes from selling the fish that he catches. He started this business many years ago with his own working capital, and he is busy working at his business every day in order to earn enough money to support his family's everyday needs.

Jose requested a $1000 loan through KIF to improve and expand his business. He will use his loan to buy essential items, such as trawling equipment and fish nets, and to repair his boat. Jose hopes to see an upswing in the amount of fish he can catch as a result of this investment, which will allow him to improve his earnings at the market.
