A loan of $550 helped to purchase merchandise (blankets, sheets, curtains, bedspreads, suits, etc.).

Safia's story

She's a widow and doesn't have children. She lives with her family in a house she owns and also supports two siblings who live with her.
She runs her own business selling blankets and curtains. With the current loan she intends to purchase products (blankets, sheets, curtains, bedspreads, suits, etc.) in order to stock up and diversify her merchandise.
In the future she wishes to build rooms for renting and an enclosing wall for her house. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so she can request more loans from Hluvuku.
Her challenge is access to loans and instability in her business.
