A loan of $400 helps to buy construction materials.


Ofumane's story

Ofumane is a 35-year-old gentleman who is married. He has two children, who are 4 and 8 years of age and study at primary school. He has been working as a security guard at a tourism complex for 10 years.

With the loan amount, he says that he intends to buy cement, stone, rods, and nails to start the construction of his house. This is his fourth loan; the previous ones were used to legalize his lot and buy cement to make blocks.

The dream of this gentleman is to have a house with better conditions.
