Gilda's story

Gilda is a widow and the mother of 5 children, all over 18. She lives in her own house with her family and doesn’t support anyone else.

She’s a trader and owns her own business selling essential products. With this loan she plans to buy construction material (cement, blocks, iron, stone and others) to continue building her house.

In future she wishes to finish her house, furnish it and re-fit her commercial establishment and to this end she commits to duly paying off her loan in order to solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

Her challenge is to pay off her loan so that she has the opportunity to request another one.
