A loan of $675 helped to buy household appliances (an iron, a tea kettle, a stove, etc.).


Marçal's story

Marçal is married and has children that are in school. He lives in his own home with his family and doesn't support anyone besides them. He is a long distance truck driver. He will use this loan to buy household appliances (an iron, a tea kettle, a stove, etc.) to improve his family's living conditions. In the future, he hopes to finish adding onto his house and to acquire his own vehicle. To do this, he promises to make his payments on time so he can request more loans from Hluvuku. His challenge is that his line of work makes it difficult to be with his family most of the time and that sometimes his truck breaks down.
