Giesteira's story

Giesteira is the mother of three children, one of whom goes to school. She lives in her own home and doesn't support anyone else besides her family. She owns her own business selling food products. She will use this loan to buy products (rice, flour, peanuts, pasta, beans, etc.) to increase her quantity of merchandise. In the future, she hopes to expand her business and to continue her studies to receive higher education. To do this, she promises to make her payments on time so she can request more loans from Hluvuku. Her biggest challenge is working more and acquiring a vehicle to help with personal transportation.
