Maria Adelaide Macha
My name is Maria AdelaiD. Machava D. C., and I am a 44-year-old single mother and a native of the city of Maputo. I grew up under the care of my parents; however, the family’s financial situation did not allow me to study pass the 7th graD.. Since 1997 I have assumed full administrative responsibilities for the family business and owned a commercial establishment at the 16th kilometer of the Boane district. Currently my business serves as the source of income for myself and the other members of my family (3 siblings and 2 children); the revenues help support familial and educational expenses. With this loan, I intend to buy property and expand the production of ornamental flowers and inoculated fruit trees, thus responding positively to client demands.

Maria’s business’ impact on the community is great because beyond providing employment to herself and 5 other people she offers ornamental flowers and fruit trees to the clients of Boane and the cities of Matola and Maputo.
