A loan of $525 helped buy construction materials (iron, metal sheets, rings, beams and others) to continue the building work on his house.


Gonçalves's story

Gonçalves is married and the father of 2 children who are already of age, lives in his own house and doesn't support anyone else.

He works as a banana packer. With this loan he plans to buy construction materials (iron, metal sheets, rings, beams and others) to continue the building work on his house.

In future Gonçalves hopes to complete and furnish his home. To this end he commits to duly paying off the loan in order to solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

His challenge is the lack of sufficient funds to make all his projects a reality.
