A loan of $550 helped to purchase construction supplies (beams, cement, metal sheets, sand, rocks, etc.) in order to continue building his house.


Joaquim's story

He's married and has two children, one of which attends school. He lives with his family in a house he owns and also supports a sister-in-law who lives with him.
He works as border guard. With the present loan he intends to purchase construction supplies (beams, cement, metal sheets, sand, rocks, etc.) in order to continue building his home.
In the future he wishes to build a shopping center. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so that he can request more loans from Hluvuku.
His challenge is the lack of funds for investing in a business and increasing his family's income.
