She has never had loans in other banks. She first heard of Hluvuku through a friend who is also a client of this institution. This is her third loan with Hluvuku. It is for 15.000mt, which she intends to use to purchase construction supplies for her house (stone, metal sheets, rafters, iron, cement, etc.). The other loans were for 10.500 and 12.000mt, for personal housing expenses.
She pledges to repay as scheduled. In the future she plans to finish building her home and to set up a business. For that reason she intends to request more loans from Hluvuku.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
