A loan of $725 helped to purchase rice, beans, olive oil, peanuts and other items for selling.

Jose's story

He's married and has six children, all of them adults. He lives with his family in a house he owns and also supports a grandson who lives with him.
He's in the military, and he's also a businessman who sells foodstuffs. With the current loan he intends to purchase goods (rice, beans, olive oil, peanuts, etc.) in order to stock up with merchandise.
In the future he wishes to officially marry his wife. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so he can request more loans from Hluvuku.
His challenge is the high cost of merchandise and the financial hardships.
