Helena's story

Helena is married and the mother of 3 children who go to school, lives in a house she owns and doesn't support anyone else.

She works as a civil servant. With this loan she plans to buy construction materials (sand, cement, stone, metal sheets and others) to continue to build her house.

In future Helena hopes to complete the building work and furnish her home. 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 sufficient funds to make all her projects a reality.
