A loan of $500 helped to buy tomato, cabbage, and cucumber seeds and compost to improve his seedbed.


Salomao's story

Salamao is the father of 15 children, one of whom is in school. He lives in his own home with his family and also supports 4 grandchildren who live with him. He works as a farmer on his own land. With the current loan, he will buy tomato, cabbage, and cucumber seeds and compost to improve his seedbed. In the future, he hopes to use his tractor to continue working and helping some communities that use hand tools. To do this, promises to make his payments on time so he can request more loans from Hluvuku. His challenge is buying a new tractor to help with his work and to increase his level of production.
