A loan of $625 helped to purchase fish for sale.


Jose's story

Jose was born in the Gaza province. He is 34 years old and lives with his wife in a home he owns, along with his family. He has 2 children and also supports his 3 brothers who live with him.

He has been a teacher for more than 10 years. He has a fixed contract from 6am from 3pm and earns a monthly salary that he uses for household expenses. He also has a business selling fish wholesale. He does not have employees but his wife helps him.

This is his third loan with Hluvuku, in the amount of 17.000.00mt, which he will use to purchase more fish in order to meet customer demand. The prior loans were for 6.500.000mt and 15.000.00mt for housing.

In the future he plans to enroll in the university and continue his education. He is confident he will pay off the loan early despite the electricity cuts that affect his business.
