A loan of $225 helped to purchase beauty products (perfumes, nail polish, vitamins, massages, hair extensions, hair weaves, etc.).


Zelia's story

She's married and has two children. One of them is already an adult and the other one still attends school. She lives with her family in a house she owns and also supports a sister who lives with her.
She's a hairdresser who owns her own beauty parlor. With this loan she intends to purchase beauty products (perfumes, nail polish, vitamins, massages, hair extensions, hair weaves, etc.) in order to stock up with merchandise.
In the future she wishes to set up another, more sophisticated salon which can provide more services. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so she can request more loans from Hluvuku.
The challenge she faces is lacking enough capital to ensure the expansion of her business.
