A loan of $550 helped to purchase fertilizer, pesticide, fuel, etc., to use on his farm.


Jaime's story

He's married and has two children who attend school. He lives with his family in a house he owns and doesn't support anyone else.
He's a farmer and runs his own business. With this loan he intends to purchase fertilizer, pesticide, fuel, etc., to use on his farm.
In the future he wishes to expand his farm with more hectares. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so he can request more loans from Hluvuku.
The challenge he faces is working harder in order to increase his profits.
