A loan of $900 helped to purchase electric supplies to install in his house (wires, inlets, outlets, lamps, etc.) in order to continue making home improvements.


Jorge's story

He's married and has six adult children, only two of which attend school. He lives with his family in a house he owns and also supports a nephew who lives with him. He owns a plot of land where he produces various goods for selling. With the present loan he intends to purchase electric supplies to install in his house (wires, inlets, outlets, lamps, etc.), in order to continue making home improvements. In the future he wishes to invest in his children's education and to expand his agricultural acreage. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so that he can request more loans from Hluvuku. His challenge is to finish building his house and to purchase a means of transportation for marketing his produce.
