A loan of $850 helped to buy merchandise (beer, wine, soft drinks, rice, broth, oil, etc.).

Lucia's story

Lucia is married and has five children, two of whom are adults. She lives with her family in a home they own and is not financially responsible for anyone else.

She has a business selling a variety of products, and she plans to use this loan to purchase merchandise (beer, wine, soft drinks, rice, broth, oil, etc.) to increase the quantity and range of her stock.

In the future she hopes to improve her house and furnish it and make her business more sustainable. She is committed to paying off this loan so she can apply for further loans from Hluvuku.

Her greatest challenge is the high cost of living and the constant price increases in the wholesale market.
