View original language description ↓
Leila Mariza E. is 45 years old, a native of the Maputo province, married, and the mother of four children between the ages of 6 and 24. The oldest works in South Africa, a neighboring country to Mozambique. Leila supports only her other three children.



Leila studied through seventh grade, then stopped because she lost her mother very early and therefore had to look for work to support her siblings. She has never moved from the city and started working when she was 17 years old, after she lost her mother. She had her first child when she was 21 and with her first husband, with whom she separated. Later she met the man with whom she has been living and continues to live today. She lives in her own house, which is still under construction.



Leila has been an employee at the Military Hospital in Maputo for 20 years, with a monthly salary of 2,850 meticals. She does not manage to save anything. This is her third loan with Hluvuku (Kiva’s Field Partner). The first and second loans were for 10,000 meticals each. The first was used to buy consumer goods. The second and third loans were to buy construction material. Her dream is to give her children a good education.
