A loan of $675 helped to purchase construction supplies (iron rods, cement, beams, zinc sheets, etc.).


Romao's story

He's married and has five children, all of which attend school. He lives with his family in a house he owns and also supports his mother who lives with him. He works as a mechanic. With the current loan he intends to purchase construction supplies (iron rods, cement, beams, zinc sheets, etc.) in order to continue building his house. In the future he plans to finish building his home and to make progress in his career by opening a shop of his own. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so he can request more loans from Hluvuku. His challenge is the lack of sufficient funds for investing in opening his shop.
