Maria
Maria Elidja N., 26 years old, is a native of Salamanga, Matutuíne District, Maputo Province and is married and the mother of two children. She attended school through fifth grade. For various reasons, she separated from her first husband, and returned to her parents' home, starting a type of business where she walked about selling clothes. She did not have enough funds available to make the business viable, and turned to HLUVUKU's financial services in 2001.


With financing, the results were encouraging, having acquired, repaired and equipped a market-type commercial establishment.


She currently employs four people, including herself. She has two children depending on her, as well as her parents and five nephews whose parents died as victims of HIV/AIDS.


With this loan, she is trying to increase her working capital in order to respond to the shopping for basic goods needed during the holiday period that is approaching, Christmas and New Year's. This establishment benefits around sixty (60) families residing in the village of Salamanga.
