A loan of $375 helped to purchase construction supplies (zinc sheets, iron, cement, sand, etc.) in order to enlarge her home.


Atalia's story

She's single and has six children, four of whom are already adults. She lives with her family in a house she owns and also supports four daughters-in-law who live with her. She works as an agricultural laborer for a company that produces and sells bananas ("Bananalândia"). With the current loan she intends to purchase construction supplies (zinc sheets, iron, cement, sand, etc.) in order to enlarge her home. In the future she plans to keep on improving her home. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so she can request more loans from Hluvuku. The challenge she faces is repaying the loan as scheduled, so that she continues to earn the institution's trust.
