A loan of $550 helped to purchase construction supplies (cement, iron, rocks, sand, etc.) in order to continue building her house.


Filomena's story

She's single and has a son who attends school. She lives with her mother and doesn't support anyone else.
She's a trader who runs her own business selling essential goods. With this loan she intends to purchase construction supplies (cement, iron, rocks, sand, etc.) in order to continue building her house.
In the future she hopes to finish building her home and to get a job. 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 and expanding her business.
