She makes a monthly income of 4,000 meticais per month, which she puts towards her living expenses. She also saves some in her bank account (Bim).

She has never had a loan with another bank. She became familiar with Hluvuku through a conversation with a customer of the organization. This is her second loan in the amount of 20,400 meticais, which she will use to purcahse merchandise (towels, bedding, curtains, wallets, etc.) to increase the quantity of her merchandise.

She is confident that she will make her payments ahead of time so she can ask for another loan so she can build a fixed stand and stop working as a traveling street vendor.
