A loan of $725 helped to purchase construction supplies (cement, iron, stone) and to pay for labor, so she can continue building her house.


Laurencia's story

She's married and has five children, two of whom still attend school. She lives with her family in a house she owns and doesn't support anyone else.
She owns her own business selling foodstuffs. With this loan she intends to purchase construction supplies (cement, iron, rocks) and to pay for labor, so she can continue building her house.
In the future she wishes to finish building her house and to build additional rooms for her children. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so she can request more loans from Hluvuku.
The challenge she faces is buying a vehicle for her family's transportation, and ensuring her children's education.
