Isabel's story

Isabel was born in Maputo. She is 41 years old and lives with her partner. She has four children, all of whom are in school. She is also financially responsible for her mother, who lives in Maputo.
She's had her own business for more than nine years and uses her income to pay for household expenses. This is her third loan with Hluvuku, and she plans to use it to expand her business, purchasing staple goods such as rice, corn or wheat flour, sugar, eggs, and other products to satisfy her customers' needs.
In the future she plans to expand her business and acquire a vehicle to us to transport goods. Her biggest dream is to pay for her children's education through high school.
