A loan of $500 helped buy goods (a freezer, a bed and a TV) to provide more comfort for her family.


Atália's story

Atália is a widow and the mother of 5 children, 2 of whom are of age but the others still go to School. She lives in a house she owns with her family and doesn't support anyone else.

She's a gardner and with this loan she plans to buy goods (a freezer, a bed and a TV) to provide more comfort for her family.

In future Atália hopes to build a better house because she still lives in one built from local materials. To this end she commits to duly paying off the loan so that she can solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

Her challenge is to have another source of income so as to overcome her financial difficulties.
