Marta
Marta C. is 45 years old and a native of Macassane, Matutuíne District, Maputo Province. She was educated according to her parents' conditions, that is, she couldn't have any formal education or attend any school, but she was educated under the cultural conditions of the family and the area where she lived. She got married at age 18 to her only husband, with whom she had three children. They are currently separated and she says that she's been divorced for 15 years. After the separation from her husband, she worked with two companies, one a chicken breeder. During the 16 years of war between Frelimo and Renamo, she took refuge in the Kingdom of Swaziland, where she worked at a wood processing company as a peeler until 2003, and then the company went bankrupt and she was given severance pay. With that, she returned to Mozambique, having built a commercial establishment, and then she didn't have enough funds to acquire stock and through her sister found out about HLUVUKU.


The first loan was for the purchase of basic goods, so she was able to grow up to now.


With this loan, she plans to acquire a means of transportation to make purchases for her establishment, while also being able to transport goods for other merchants in her area, since Macassane is 50 km away from the city of Maputo. Mrs. Marta's business provides an excellent service for 75 families in Macassane and created 3 jobs, including her own, a driver and a driver's assistant.
