Catarina's story

Catarina is a widow and the mother of 3 children, 1 of who attends School. She lives in her own house with her family and supports her daughter-in-law and granddaughter who live with her.

She is a civil servant in a Government institution and with this loan she plans to buy construction materials (cement, bricks and labour) to continue the building work on her house.

In future she hopes to continue working until she reaches retirement age and open her own business to increase her monthly income. To this end she commits to duly paying off her loan in order to solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

Her challenge is to finish her house and purchase a vehicle to help with her projects.
