A loan of $350 helped to purchase goods for selling (beans, rice, pasta, soap, broths, flour, etc.).


Catarina's story

She's married and has four children who still attend school. She lives with her family in a house she owns and doesn't have other dependents.
She's a retailer who sells various foodstuffs. With this loan she intends to purchase goods (beans, rice, pasta, soap, broths, flour, etc.) in order to stock up and diversify her merchandise.
In the future she wishes to increase productivity in her business and become less dependant on loans. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so she can request more loans from Hluvuku.
The challenge she faces is the low level of capital for using in her business.
