Melda's story

Melda is separated and the mother of 6 children, 2 of whom attend School. She lives in her own home with her family and supports another 4 grandchildren. She is a trader and owns her own business selling drinks. With this loan she plans to buy products (sodas, juices, beers, wine and others) to increase and diversify her goods. In future she wishes to furnish her home and to this end she commits to duly paying off the loan in order to solicit further loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is to improve her establishment and improve her service to obtain more clients.
