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

A loan helped to buy fishing materials.

Arlete's story

Arlete is 30 years old and the single mother of a minor daughter who attends primary school. She lives in her own house and cares for her nephews and her mother.

She has been a fisherwoman for more than ten years and has her own boat that she uses for work. She plans to use this loan to buy fishing nets, bait, and leads to boost her business. This is the tenth time she is benefiting from a Hluvuku loan. She used the previous ones for repairs to her boat, the purchase of nets, the construction of her house, etc. She plans to take out more loans with a view towards improving her conditions.

Arlete's dream is to have another boat to increase her monthly income.
