Fatima
Fatima was born in the Chibuto district, Gaza Province, in Southern Mozambique. She is married and has 4 children, all of whom attend school. She completed school through the 7th grade but dropped out due to her parents' financial situation. She owns the home where she lives with her family and she also supports a nephew who lives with her.

She left Gaza for the Boane district when she got married. She is a housekeeper and only her husband earns a salary. His monthly salary has been 5.000.00mt for over 15 years, which they use for household expenses and savings in their bank account (BIM). Fatima has never had a loan with another bank and learned about Hluvuku through a friend who is also a client.

This is her second loan with Hluvuku, in the amount of 24.000.00mt, which she will use to purchase construction materials to continue building the wall of her home (sand, cement, stones, concrete block, etc.) She promises to make her payments on time and in the future hopes to finish construction and purchase a vehicle to transport her family. She plans to request additional loans from Hluvuku for that purpose.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
