Isabel's story

Isabel is 41 years old and the married mother of five children, three of whom are adults who live in their own houses, while the other two attend secondary school. A merchant by profession, she is also an agent for the Organização da Mulher Moçambicana [Organization of Mozambican Women] in her community.

Isabel will use the money from the loan to buy coconuts and sacks of peanuts to sell at the Zimpeto wholesale market and from a bench at her house. This is her first loan with Hluvuku, and after it is repaid she will apply for additional loans to develop her business.

In the future she plans to open a stall to sell coconuts, peanuts, tapioca and pigeon peas, and to pay off her loan on time so she will qualify for future financing.
