A loan of $400 helped to purchase construction supplies for her house (cement, sand, cinder blocks, etc.).


Albertina's story

She was born in the district of Nammacha. She is 38 years old, single and the mother of three children, all of which attend school. She lives in a house she owns and is also responsible for her two nieces who live with her. She is able to save 1.000mt in her bank account.
She has never left the district and started her retail business at a very young age. She has been in sales for over 20 years and sells various kinds of clothing. With her profits she was able to begin her construction project, but couldn't finish it due to the high cost of supplies. She requests a loan from Hluvuku so that she can keep building.
This is her fourth loan with Hluvuku. It is for 10.000mt, which she intends to use to purchase construction supplies for her house (cement, sand, cinder blocks, etc.). The first loans were for 3.000mt, 5.000mt and 7.000mt, for her retail business. She is willing to successfully make the repayments in order to obtain more loans.
