A loan of $375 helped to buy construction materials (cement, zinc sheets, sand, beams, etc.).


Helena's story

Helena is married and is the mother of four children who go to school. She lives in her own home with her family and doesn't support anyone besides them. She works as an agricultural worker in a private company. She will use this loan to buy construction materials (cement, zinc sheets, sand, beams, etc.) to continue work on her home. In the future, she hopes to finish her home and to furnish it to offer her family more comfort. To do this, she promises to make her payments on time so she can request more loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is the elevated price of materials and the very high cost of living.
