A loan of $375 helped to buy flour, rice, soft drinks, beans, etc.


Joaquim's story

Joaquim is married and is the father of one daughter who is in school. He lives in his own home and doesn't support anyone else besides his immediate family. He is a police officer and has his own business selling various products. He will use this loan to buy flour, rice, soft drinks, beans, etc., to increase his quantity of merchandise. In the future, he hopes to expand his business by building a better location for it and by acquiring a vehicle to transport his products. To do this, he promises to make his payments on time so he can request more loans from Hluvuku. His challenge is the elevated price of his products.
