For over 10 years she has worked at the social club of the EDM (Mozambique electric utility) as an assistant. She works from 7am to 5pm and receives a salary that she uses for household expenses and construction of her home. In additional to her work she has had overtime which she will also use to pay back her loan in an intent to pay it off more quickly and have access to another one.

This is her first loan with Hluvuku, in the amount of 15.000.00mt, which she will use to purchase construction materials (cement, blocks, and sand) in order to finish the interior walls of her living room.

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.
