A loan of $550 helped to purchase seeds and fertilizers to use in her fields..


Maria's story

Maria is a widow and mother to 5 children, 2 of whom still attend school. She owns the home where they live and she also supports 4 grandchildren who live with her. She works in agriculture and has her own field. With this loan she plans to buy seeds and fertilizers to use in her field. In the future she hopes to work more and build a shop to sell various products. For this reason she promises to pay her loan on time in order to request additional loans from Hluvuku. The challenge she faces is access to more credit in order to realize her goals.
