A loan helped to buy fruit to resell.


Manuel's story

Manuel is 35 years old. He is a business owner. He lives with his wife. He is the father of a six-year-old son who goes to first grade and also supports his 13-year-old sister who goes to seventh grade. He lives with her in a house that he owns.

He says that with this loan he plans to augment the volume of his merchandise, getting fruit such as apples, grapes, pears, strawberries, and dates.

This is his third loan with Hluvuku. With his previous loans, he strengthened his business and his wife’s salon.

His biggest dream is to open a car wash business and a stationery store.
