Halima's story

Halima is from the Inhambane province. She attended school until the 7th grade. She is a single mother of 2 sons ages 3 and 7. She left Inhambane for a job that a friend had arranged for her, and she decided to stay. She now works and lives in the tourist area of Ponta D'Ouro in the Matutuine district. Her salary enables her to feed her family and save a bit in the bank.

She learned about Hluvuku-Adesma through conversations with colleagues and friends, and decided to learn more about the process of becoming a client and benefiting from loans to complete her projects. She became a client of Hluvuku-Adesma on March 25, 2009, and is still a client in 2011. Her first loan was for 3.000.00Mts to purchase cement for blocks. The second was for 8.000.00Mts, and the third was for 10.000.00Mts also to purchase materials and pay for labor. With this loan of 30.000.00Mts, she plans to continue the work, purchasing stones and zinc panels for roofing.

She is anxious to complete her home, and will count on Hluvuku-Adesma for additional loans.
