Rubens's story

Rubens is married and has eight children, five of whom are from are from his current relationship and attend school. He lives with his family in a house he owns and doesn't support anyone else other than his children. He works as a security guard for a private company. With the current loan he intends to purchase construction supplies (window frames, windows, cement, sand, rocks, doors, etc.) in order to continue building his house. In the future he wishes to start a business raising broiler chickens and to establish a store. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled so he can request more loans from Hluvuku. The challenge he faces is keeping himself healthy so that nothing can get in the way of his projects.
