Avelina's story

Avelina is a widow and the mother of five children, all of whom are adults. She lives in her own home with her family and doesn't support anyone else besides them. She owns her own business selling basic goods. With this loan, she will buy products (rice, flour, oil, beans, etc.) to increase her quantity of merchandise. In the future, she hopes to work more and to improve her family's living conditions. To do this, she promises to make her payments on time so she can request more loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is the high cost of living.
