Ernesto's story

Ernesto is married and the father of 7 children, 6 of whom attend School. He lives in his own house with his family and doesn’t support anyone else.

He works as a baker and has a business selling various products. With this loan he plans to buy products (beer, rice, oil, sugar, soap and others) to increase the quantity of his stock.

In future he intends to purchase a vehicle to facilitate the transportation of the products to his establishment and to this end he commits to duly paying off his loan in order to solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

His challenge is the high cost of living and the expensive prices of the products.
