A loan of $850 helped to purchase construction supplies (cement, bricks, wire mesh, etc.).


Alfredo's story

Alfredo is a widower and has 10 children, 6 of whom are already independent adults. He lives in a house he owns and doesn't support anyone else other than his 4 underage children. He's a serviceman for the National Ministry of Defense. With the current loan he intends to purchase construction supplies (cement, bricks, wire mesh, etc.) in order to build a hutch and start raising broiler chickens. In the future he wishes to expand his business and acquire more experience. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled so he can request more loans from Hluvuku. The challenge he faces is getting an outlet for his product and presenting a challenge for the competition.
