A loan of $500 helped buy construction materials (cement, iron, sand, stone and others) to build hencoops to raise hens for slaughter.


Rostalina's story

Rostalina is single and the mother of 8 children, all of age. She lives in a house she owns and doesn't support anyone else. She's a trader and sells chickens. With this loan she plans to buy construction materials (cement, iron, sand, stone and others) to build hencoops to raise hens for slaughter. In future, Rostalina hopes to finish building the coops and make her business more sustainable. To this end she commits to duly paying off the loan so as to solicit further loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is to work harder, to understand how to handle the competition in her market and to improve her life.
