A loan of $675 helped to purchase rice, beans, noodles, broths, peanuts, etc. for selling.


Amélia's story

She's single and has two children who attend school. She lives with her family in a house she owns and also supports a nephew who lives with her.
She's in retail and sells various foodstuffs. With the current loan she intends to purchase goods (rice, beans, noodles, broths, peanuts, etc.) in order to stock up and diversify her merchandise.
In the future she wishes to build a sales stand in her yard, since she currently uses only a board. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled so she can request more loans from Hluvuku.
The challenge she faces is keeping herself strong and healthy so that she can properly develop her business.
