Albertina Paulino
View original language description ↓
Albertina is 36 years old and was born in the district of Namaacha, a district bordering with Swaziland. She is divorced and the mother of 4 children. Her oldest is 15 and is in the 9th grade, her second is 13 and in the 6th grade, her third is 9 and in the 3rd grade, and her last is 22 months.



Albertina supports only her family of 4 children, but sometimes she sends money to her mother to help her with the bills. Albertina studied until the 6th grade and stopped because of the war and because her family did not have the ability to send her to the city to study. In 1993 she left the district of Namaacha with her marriage and went to the district of Boane where she lives today. She lives in her own home. She is an instructor in a small school in Mafuiane, an administrative post in the district of Boane, with an indeterminate contract. She has worked 16 years at this school.



Albertina learned in this same school accumulating experience and was later enabled to improve her teaching techniques. She has a monthly salary of 2,500MT and saves 1,500MT. This is Albertina's second loan in her life and the first through Kiva. The first was with GGLS and was obtained through the group system. She discovered Hluvuku from some conversations with neighbors and friends. She has the dream to see her house finished and her children educated.
