A loan of $500 helped buy construction material (cement, sand and others) to increase the quantity of his stock.


Elias's story

Elias is married and the father of 1 son who is still too young to go to school. He lives in a house he owns and doesn't support anyone else.

He's a photographer by profession and owns a store selling construction material. With this loan he plans to buy construction material (cement, sand and others) to increase the quantity of his stock.

In future Elias hopes to grow his business by building another commercial establishment and purchasing a vehicle for commercial purposes. To this end he commits to duly paying off the loan so that he can solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

His challenge is to progress even further in his business so that he can reach his objectives.
