A loan of $450 helped to purchase construction supplies (cement, sand, rocks, iron, etc.) in order to enlarge his house.


Joao's story

He's married and the father of two children, one of whom is already in school. He lives with his family in a house he owns and doesn't support anyone else.
He's head of department at a company that produces and sells bananas. With this loan he intends to purchase construction supplies (cement, sand, rocks, iron, etc.) in order to enlarge his house.
In the future he wishes to go back to school and complete his studies. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled so he can request more loans from Hluvuku.
The challenge he faces is reconciling his work and school schedules so that he can move forward with his education.
