A loan of $675 helped buy construction materials (iron, sand, cement and others) to continue to build her house.


Imelda's story

Imelda is married and the mother of 2 children who go to School, lives in a house she owns and doesn't support anyone else.

She works as a maid and has a business selling food products. With this loan she plans to buy construction materials (iron, sand, cement and others) to continue to build her house.

In future Imelda hopes to finish her house and continue with her studies. To this end she commits to duly paying off the loan so that she can solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

Her challenge is the lack of funds to make all her projects come to fruition.
