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

A loan helped to purchase goods for selling (milk, sugar, rice, flour, cooking oil, pasta, broths, etc.).

Sheila's story

She's married and has three children who still attend school. She lives with her family in a house she owns and doesn't support anyone else. She's a retailer who sells various foodstuffs. With this loan she intends to purchase goods (milk, sugar, rice, flour, cooking oil, pasta, broths, etc.) in order to stock up with merchandise. In the future she wishes to expand her business in order to ensure an increase in her profits. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so she can request more loans from Hluvuku. The challenge she faces is lacking enough capital to ensure the expansion of her business.
