She has started to study 5 years ago because before that she didn’t have conditions to do so. At this moment, she is enrolled at the 5th grade and she intends to continue her studies up to higher education.
She never leaves Maputo. She has been owner of her business for 7 years. Her husband is carpenter. She learned how to do business from her husband when he worked with a businessman and she has more than 12 years of experience. Through her business, she is able to earn approximately 5,000.00 MZN per month, with which she helps with the household expenses and saves some money together with her friends by the traditional system (called Xitique).
She learned about Hluvuku through her husband and has never requested a loan at other banks. This is her 5th loan with this institution, of 15,000 MZN. The previous loans were 5,200 MZN, 7,000 MZN, 10,000 MZN and 12,000 MZN, and all of them were applied in the same activity.
The challenge she faces is the high cost of the construction materials. Even so, she does not give up on her goal to see her house finished. In the future, she intends to request more loans in order to conclude her house construction.

About Housing Loans

Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
