Agostinha
Agostinha Mucomo, 38 years old, native of Mudada, District of Matutuine, is a mother of 4 children and currently divorced. She was in school through the sixth level, but couldn't continue with her studies due to marriage. She separated from her husband about three years ago. They both lived in the city of Maputo and after the separation she returned to her parents' house. With their help, she built a small establishment where she was lacking capital, so through information from her mother, who was already a client of Hluvuku quite a while ago, she was instructed in how to proceed with a loan request. With the courage of an entrepreneur, she directed herself to Hluvuku where she obtained her first financing. From then until now, she has been able to achieve stability in the business and was able to invest in improvement for the small establishment.


With this loan, she intends to acquire more merchandise and a refrigerator to preserve fresh products.


She acquired her business experience in the city of Maputo, where she sold basic goods in the informal market. She currently employs two young mothers and sustains four children.


She plans to expand the commercial establishment, have her own home and buy her own vehicle.
