Ana's story

Ana is separated and the mother of four children. Three are adults and one is in school. She lives in her own home with her children and doesn't support anyone besides them. She owns a business selling various products. She will use this loan to buy construction materials (sand, cement, stone, etc.) to plaster the wall outside of her house. In the future, she wants to acquire a vehicle help her business. To do this, she promises to make her payments on time so she can apply for more loans from Hluvuku in the future. Her challenge is working more to ensure that her business makes the necessary income to reach her goals.
