Benjamim's story

Benjamin is married and has five children. Two of the children go to school. He lives in his own house with his family and does not support anyone else.

He works as a shoemaker and has his own business selling staple items. He intends to use this loan to buy merchandise (oil, beans, rice, beverages, soft drinks and other products) to increase and diversify his merchandise. Benjamin has a physical disability; he lost both legs in the civil war. He receives help from his children and his wife.

He wants to build rooms for rent in the future so he can improve his family's living conditions. To do this, he promises to pay off the loan on time so he can ask Hluvuku for more loans.

The high cost of living and financial problems are a challenge for him.
