Lorta
Lorta was born in the province of Inhambane. She is 61 and the single mother of 4 children, 3 of whom have passed away. She lives in her own home with her youngest son, who is married, and also with her three grandchildren, who are in school.

She moved to the district of Namaacha during the war after she lost 3 of her children. After she arrived, she began to work as a maid. With the money she made, she started her own business and built her house with the earnings from her business. She goes to the informal market twice a week where she trades for products from outside of the country. She earns 5,000 meticals a month that she puts towards her home's expenses.

This is her fourth loan with Hluvuku. Her previous loans were for 8,000, 10,000 and 15,000 meticals, and they went towards her business. This loan is for 15,000 meticals that she will use to buy bundles of clothing (pants, nightgowns, and shirts). She is confident that she will pay back her loan on time so she can ask for another one to finish her only son's home.
