She works as an office worker and has a business selling various products. With this loan she plans to buy construction materials (cement, sand stone, iron and others) to continue the building work on her house. In future she hopes to finish her home and buy a vehicle to transport her goods. To this end she commits to duly paying off the loan in order to solicit further loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is to stay healthy in order to make all of her projects a reality.
