A loan of $425 helped to buy building materials.


Pedro's story

Pedro was born in Manjacaze in the province of Gaza. He is 52 years old and married. He is officially a father of six children, all of whom go to school. He is responsible for a nephew who lives with him. He is a teacher trainer and works at the Training Institute for Primary Teachers. He lives in his own home with his family.

Pedro wants to repair his coop so he is applying for his sixth loan from Hluvuku. With this loan he intends to buy building materials such as cement, zinc sheeting and beams to repair his coop.

This is a successive loan; Pedro used the previous loans to purchase building materials to renovate his home. In the future he hopes to open a stationery store to ensure that his children can go on to study at high school.
