Gilda's story

Gilda is married and doesn't have children yet. She lives with her family in a home they own and is not financially responsible for anyone else. She is with her husband in the photo. She is a merchant and has owned her own business for some time. She will use this loan to buy products (cooking oil, sugar, beans, soap, rice, etc.) to increase the quantity of merchandise she carries and meet her customers' needs. In the future she hopes to become a successful businesswoman. She is committed to paying off this loan so she can apply for further loans from Hluvuku. The greatest challenge she faces is the high cost of living.
