A loan of $1,050 helped to buy consumer goods (refrigerators, microwaves, etc.) to sell and increase her earnings.


Suraya's story

Suraya is divorced and has three children, one of whom is still in school. She lives with her family in a home they own and is not financially responsible for anyone else. She has had a business selling a variety of products for some time. She will use this loan to buy appliances (refrigerators, microwaves, etc.) to sell and increase her earnings. In the future she hopes to build a beauty salon and buy a vehicle. She is committed to paying off this loan so she can apply for further loans from Hluvuku. Her greatest challenge is retrieving her merchandise from customs and transporting it.
