Otilia
View original language description ↓
Otilia G. is 24 years old and native to the district of Matutuine in the province of Maputo. As a child she did not have the opportunity to study, and due to her parents' lack of conditions she only attended school until the 7th grade. As a result she found herself obliged to go to South Africa to search for work. However, at her place of employment she came to marry a Mozambican man in that neighboring country. She says that they lived there for some time and the conditions did not improve so they had to return to Mozambique.



As she is alone at home and her current house offers only minimum security, she proposed to her husband that they solicit a loan so they could construct a home with conventional materials. This loan goes to purchase cement and labor since some materials they had already acquired with their family savings. She envisions that after finishing her home and furnishings that she will begin other investments like raising cattle or goats.
