Helena's story

Helena is married and is the mother of 5 children, 3 of whom go to school. She lives in her own home and also supports 2 grandchildren who live with her. She is a nursing assistant at the local health center. She will use this loan to buy products (rice, flour, sugar, beans, dough, soups, etc.) to increase her quantity of merchandise. In the future, she hopes to grow her business and open a general store. To do this, she promises to make her payments on time so she can request more loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is the lower demand during the winter.
