A loan of $725 helped to purchase construction supplies (bricks, beams, iron, cement, rocks, etc.).


Pedro's story

He's married and has eight children, four of whom still attend school. He lives with his family in a house he owns and doesn't support anyone else. He works as a security guard for a private company. With the current loan he intends to purchase construction supplies (bricks, beams, iron, cement, rocks, etc.) in order to rehabilitate and enlarge his house. In the future he wants to finish building his home and purchase a vehicle to make it easier for him to commute to work. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so that he can request more loans from Hluvuku. His challenge is the high price of construction supplies and the high cost of living.
