A loan of $425 helped buy construction material (windows, doors, cement, sand, stone and others) to continue the building work on his house.


João's story

João is divorced and the father of 3 children, only 1 of whom attends School, lives in his own house and supports his mother by sending her some money to help with ongoing expenses.

He's retired and receives a pension. With this loan he plans to buy construction material (windows, doors, cement, sand, stone and others) to continue the building work on his house.

In future he hopes to complete and furnish his house and have a family. To this end he commits to duly paying off the loan so as to solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

His challenge is to find a source of income to add to his current one and to manage to maintain his health.
