Catarina's story

Catarina is married and the mother of 5 children, 3 of whom already attend School, lives in her own house with her family and doesn't support anyone else.

She is a trader and sells various products. With this loan she plans to buy products (rice, flour, beans, stocks, oil, sodas and others) to reinforce and diversify her stock.

In future she hopes to purchase furniture to improve the comfort of her family. To this end, she commits to duly paying off the loan in order to solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

Her challenge is the increasing prices in the bulk markets.
