A loan of $300 helped to buy 10 cows' heads and 10 boxes of tripe to resell.


Marta's story

Marta is married and has lived in Ponta de Ouro for quite a while. She has 4 children, 2 men and 2 women, who are all fully grown and this will be her seventh loan with Hluvuku-Adsema. Previously, she has used her loans to buy domestic appliances (2 freezers and a stereo system) and to restock her business. She plans to use this loan to buy 10 cows' heads and 10 boxes of tripe to resell.
She dreams of seeing her business grow and acquiring more goods which she can use within her shop, ad the greatest challenge that she faces is strengthening her business as it is her main source of family income.
