Laurinda Isaura's story

Laurinda Isaura B. is 42 years old and was born in the city of Maputo. She went to school through ninth grade and had to interrupt her studies when she became pregnant. She is a single mother of one child, who is still a student.



Laurinda used to live in the Moamba district, then came to Boane for work. She found work and still works here today, having been at several businesses. She lives in her own home and has never lived with the father of her child. She works as a typist in a public company and makes a monthly salary of 2,900 MT (meticais).



This is Laurinda's third loan with Hluvuku (Kiva's Field Partner), and she has always paid without much difficulty. In the amount of 12,000 MT, this loan is intended to purchase cement, rocks, and sand to continue the construction of a family home.



In the future she will apply for other loans to complete the work on her family dwelling.
