Vitoria was born in Massinga, in the Inhambane province of Mozambique. She is 28 years old and lives with her husband and four young children, 2 of whom are in school. She doesn't provide for anyone else besides her family.

With this loan she would like to continue with this project by buying sand, cement, and other materials. This is her third loan with Hluvuku [Kiva Field Partner].
