Fátima Vicente M. is from Maputo, 39 years old, separated and the mother of 3 children who all attend school - the oldest is 16, the second oldest is 12 and the youngest is 9. She supports only her children.


Fátima was in school until the 8th grade and she stopped studying when she landed a contract to go and work in what used to be the RDA (Democratic Republic of Germany). She remained there for two years and when she returned, she married the father of her children; a marriage which lasted only 14 years.


Fátima is a trader and business owner and sells necessary (staple) items and various drinks. She does this alone as she has no employees and her establishment opens at 8am and closes at 8pm. Her monthly income from this business is 2250 MZN and she lives in her own home.


This is Fátima’s first loan with Hluvuku and with Kiva. She intends to repay her loan early in order to request another one to improve her house and later buy a vehicle to aid her in her business.
