A loan of $500 helped buy construction materials (metal sheets, cement, stone, joists and others) to continue to build her house.


Iolanda's story

Iolanda is a widow and the mother of 3 children who go to school. She lives in her own house and doesn't support anyone else.

She works as an activist. With this loan she plans to buy construction materials (metal sheets, cement, stone, joists and others) to continue to build her house.

In future Iolanda hopes to finish building her home and to improve her family's comfort levels. 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 carry out all her projects.
