A loan of $550 helped to purchase goods for selling (rice, flour, beer, wine, refreshments, etc.).


Laurinda's story

She's single and has four children, all of whom attend school. She lives with her family in a house she owns and also supports three grandchildren who live with her.
She's a trader who runs her own business selling foodstuffs. With the current loan she intends to purchase goods (rice, flour, beer, wine, refreshments, etc.) in order to stock up and diversify her merchandise.
In the future she wishes to enlarge her house so that her family will be more comfortable. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so she can request more loans from Hluvuku.
Her challenge is to work even harder in order to increase her profits.
