A loan of $375 helped to buy and sell products (peanuts, sugar, beans, oil and other items).

Latifa's story

A married mother of 5 children, of which 3 are still at school, the borrower lives in her own home with her family and does not support anyone else besides.
She has her own business selling a range of food products, and with this loan she hopes to buy products (nuts, sugar, beans, oil and other items) to increase her stock level.
In the future she hopes to develop her business further by introducing new products, and as such she promises to punctually fulfill her repayment schedule so that she can apply again to Hluvuku.
The challenges that she faces are financial dependency and saturation of the market.
