A loan of $675 helped to purchase a water pump in order to irrigate his farmland.


Zacarias's story

Zacarias is married and has six children, two of whom still attend school. He lives in a house he owns and doesn't support anyone else.
He's a laborer and works for a banana production company. He also owns a plot of land where he intends to start a farming business. With the current loan he intends to purchase a water pump in order to irrigate his farmland.
His wish for the future is to expand his farming area. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so he can request more loans from Hluvuku.
The challenge he faces is repaying the loan as quickly as possible in order to request more loans.
