Maria's story

Maria is married and is the mother of one son who goes to school. She lives in her own home with her family and doesn't support anyone else besides them. She works as a teacher as part of the Ministry of Education. She will use this loan to buy clothing and beauty accessories to resell. In the future, she hopes to increase the capacity of her business to be able to respond to her customers' demands and to increase her income. To do this, she promises to make her payments on time so she can request more loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is obtaining a method of transportation for her merchandise.
