A loan of $875 helped purchase construction materials (iron, zinc sheets, cement, blocks and others) to continue to expand her house.


Mariana's story

Mariana is married and the mother of 6 children, 2 of which still attend School. She lives in her own house with her family and supports 2 nephews and daughters-in-law who live with her. She is retired from her post at the Ministry of Defense.

With this loan she intends to purchase construction materials (iron, zinc sheets, cement, blocks and others) to continue to expand her house.

In future she wishes to purchase a vehicle for commercial reasons and to this end, commits to duly paying off her loan in order to solicit more loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is the lack of sufficient funds to complete her projects.
