Ermelinda's story

Ermelinda is married and is the mother of three children, two of whom go to school. She lives in her own house with her family and doesn't support anyone else besides them. She owns her own business selling various food products. She will use this loan to buy products (soft drinks, crackers, pasta, juice, etc.) to increase her amount of merchandise to satisfy her customers' demand. In the future, she hopes to grow her business and to go back to school to raise her level of education. To do this, she promises to make her payments on time so she can apply for more loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is finding time to go back to school and to continue making her business grow.
