Helena's story

Helena is a widow and has six children, all of whom are adults. She lives in a house that she owns and she also supports four orphaned grandchildren. She's a poultry farmer who sells chickens. With the current loan she intends to purchase supplies (chicks, feed, vitamins, etc.) in order to increase the amount of her merchandise. Her wish for the future is to make her business grow and provide further education for her grandchildren. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so she can request more loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is the hardships she faces during the chicks' growth period.
