A loan of $500 helped to purchase a freezer in order to start a business.


Raquel's story

She's single and has two children, one of whom is already an adult. She lives with her family in a house she owns and also supports her niece who lives with her.
She works as a cashier for a company. With the current loan she intends to purchase a freezer in order to start a business.
In the future she wishes to invest in her business as a way of increasing her monthly income. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled so that she can request more loans from Hluvuku.
The challenge she faces is obtaining loans so she can start her business.
