A loan of $675 helped to buy construction materials (cement, boards, stone, iron, and others) to continue the work on the fencing wall of his home.


Rafael's story

A widower and father of 9 children, 3 of which are still in school, Rafael lives in his own home and does not support anyone else. He works as a leader of the town of Gueguegue. He plans to buy construction materials with this loan (such as cement, boards, stone, iron and others) in order to continue the work on the fencing wall sealing his home. In the future, he wants to complete the fence, furnish his home and buy a vehicle for personal transport. For these reasons, he is committed to repaying the loan which he has undertaken, in order to request further loans from Hluvuku. His challenge is to work harder and save the funds to realize all of his projects.
