A loan of $350 helped buy construction materials (cement, sand, blocks, stone, iron and others) to expand her house.


Octávia's story

Octávia is single and the mother of 2 children, only 1 of whom goes to School. She lives in her own house and doesn't support anyone else.

She works as a maid. With this loan she plans to buy construction materials (cement, sand, blocks, stone, iron and others) to expand her house.

In future she hopes to finish her home and support her son through his studies. To this end she commits to duly paying off the loan in order to solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

Her challenge is to work harder and stay healthy to guarantee that she can carry out her projects.
