Ernesto's story

Ernesto is married and the father of three children who go to school. He lives in his own home and doesn't support anyone else besides his immediate family. He is a carpenter. He will use this loan to buy construction materials (cement, iron, zinc sheets, sand, etc.) to continue work on his home. In the future, he hopes to finish his home and grow professionally. To do this, he promises to make his payments on time so he can request more loans from Hluvuku. His challenge is the elevated cost of living and paying for his children's education.
