A loan of $700 helped buy raw materials (cement and sand) to produce more blocks in her workshop.


Alice's story

Alice is married (not officially) and the mother of 4 children who all attend School. She lives in her own house and supports 3 nephews who live with her.

She's a trader and owns a workshop producing and selling blocks [bricks]. With this loan she plans to buy raw materials (cement and sand) to produce more blocks in her workshop.

In future Alice hopes to open another workshop selling blocks in a more open area which is easier for her clients to access. To this end she commits to duly paying off the loan so as to solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

Her challenge is the lack of sufficient funds to carry out all her projects and the need to stay healthy.
