Amina
Amina Luis S., 35 years of age and a native of Maputo, grew up with her mother. For their survival, her mother dedicated herself to small businesses that allowed Amina to study until the 4th grade. After 18 years, Amina emigrated to neighboring South Africa. Having returned after 2 years with funds she had saved in South Africa, she opened a small grocery store. A single mother, she is responsible for a family of four, three of which include her children. With the loan she intends to increase the volume of her business and to provide diverse products to her customers. Her business has a positive impact on the community; moreso than making these products available to the community, her income is sufficient for her to commit to familial responsibilities and the reimbursement of this loan. In the future she intends to expand her business, and with an increase in income she looks to open a larger commercial establishment.
