View original language description ↓
A single mother of six children, Maria José Z. sells cashew nuts at the central market in Maputo, Mozambique. The big sacks of pre-peeled cashew nuts she buys at wholesale price are seasoned in various ways (with sugar, salt, pepper, etc) and sold at the market in 16 oz. packages. Maria has paid all previous loans timely, and is now on her third loan cycle. The business steady (since joining the program) growth has allowed her to start putting money into a savings account regularly.
