A loan of $775 helped to purchase construction supplies (zinc sheets, rocks, sand, cement, etc.) in order to continue building his house.


Faquihi's story

He's married and has six children, only two of which attend school. He lives with his family in a house he owns. He supports only the two children who are in school, the others live in homes of their own.
He has been a beekeeper for a long time. With the current loan he intends to purchase construction supplies (zinc sheets, rocks, sand, cement, etc.) in order to continue building his house.
In the future he plans to move forward in his studies and to finish building his home. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so that he can request more loans from Hluvuku.
His challenge is to build his house, purchase a means of transportation and repay the loan as scheduled.
