A loan of $550 helped to purchase construction supplies (zinc sheets, cement, sand and bricks) and to pay for labor, so that she can continue building her house.


Lina's story

She's married and has six children, two of whom still attend school. She lives in a house she owns and doesn't support anyone else other than her children.
She owns a plot of land where she produces vegetables and grains for selling. With the current loan she intends to purchase construction supplies (zinc sheets, cement, sand and bricks) and to pay for labor, so that she can continue building her house.
In the future she wishes to finish building and furnishing her home in order to ensure her family's comfort. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so she can request more loans from Hluvuku.
The challenge she faces is having enough money for finishing the construction of her house.
