A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase sheets, blankets, pillowcases, meat and other items for selling.


Ivone's story

She's single and has two children who attend school. She lives with her family in a house she owns and also supports her sister, who lives with her. She's a trader who owns a business selling bed linen and meat. With the current loan she intends to purchase products (sheets, blankets, pillowcases, meat, etc.) in order to stock up with merchandise. In the future she wishes to remodel and enlarge her house so that she can offer her family comfort and safety. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so she can request more loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is the high cost of living and the financial hardships.
