Isabel Pedro
Isabel Pedro was born in the city of Matola in the province of Maputo in southern Mozambique. She is married and is the mother of one son, who is in seventh grade. She studied through sixth grade and didn't continue due to her parents' lack of financial resources. She lives in her own home with her family and doesn't support anyone besides them.

She has worked for the company Bananalândia for more than four years and has a salary of 3,100 meticals. She puts this towards her home's expenses and also saves some in her bank account in the BIM bank.

She has never had a loan with another bank. She became familiar with Hluvuku through a friend who is also a client of the institution. This is her first loan with Hluvuku in the amount of 18,000 meticals, which she will use to buy construction materials for her home (bricks, cement, iron, stone, etc.).

In the future, she wants to finish her home and furnish it, for which she plans on requesting more loans from Hluvuku.

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.
