Ismael's story

Ismael is married and is the father of 12 children, 6 of whom go to school. He lives in his own home with his family and also supports his mother who lives with him. He has his own business selling various products. He will use this loan to buy products (rice, soap, peanuts, flour, etc.) to increase the quantity of his merchandise. In the future, he hopes to build a better commercial establishment, to expand, and to furnish his house. To do this, he promises to make his payments on time so he can request more loans from Hluvuku. HIs challenge is working more and more and to pay back the loan as quickly as possible so he can request more.
