A loan of $350 helped to purchase goods (refreshments, sugar, flour, peanuts, etc.) for selling.


Ana's story

Ana is married and has six children, one of whom still attends school. She lives in a house she owns and supports two grandchildren who live with her.
She's a merchant and owns her own business selling various products. With the current loan she intends to purchase goods (refreshments, sugar, flour, peanuts, etc.) in order to stock up with merchandise.
Her wish for the future is to build rooms in her house so she can rent them out. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so she can request more loans from Hluvuku.
She doesn't face any challenges at the moment.
