A loan of $675 helped to purchase construction supplies (cement, iron, rocks, sand, nails, etc.) in order to continue building his house.


Tomás's story

He's a widower and has two children who attend school. He lives with his family in a house he owns and also supports his brother and niece who live with him.
He works as a self-employed electrical technician. With the current loan he intends to purchase construction supplies (cement, iron, rocks, sand, nails, etc.) in order to continue building his house.
In the future he wishes to further improve his house and to get a professional degree as a refrigeration technician. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled so that he can request more loans from Hluvuku.
The challenge he faces is expanding the services he provides so he can increase his earnings and apply for more loans.
