Running IOS project without MAC to pair with

I am new to xamarin. I have a xamarin project IOS that i want to run. But i don't have a mac machine to pair with. How can i run my project without having to buy it?
Note: The XamarinLivePlayer suggested in other threads doesn't work.

    No, we need a Mac machine to build the iOS part as the Cocoa library is not open source.
    If you want to start your temporary test you could assume the Cloud service. However, it is very necessary to own a Mac machine by your side if you want to develop an iOS project.
    Please notice Live Player is not available for iOS:
