Manuela Beneilde's story

Manuela Benilde L. was born in the city of Maputo. She is 45 years old, married, and has three children between the ages of 11 and 21. All of her children attend school. Manuela completed studies in education in the Instituto de Magistério Primários (Institute of Elementary Education) in Matola in 1996. She lives in her own home with her husband and children. She also sends money to her parents who live in another neighborhood in the same district. She grew up with her parents in the city of Maputo and the family later the moved to Boane, renting out their house. Her husband sells wood that he acquires in the northern province of Zambezia (2,500 km from Maputo). She has been working as a teacher for the state for over 8 years and earns a salary of 4.069,000 MT plus a portion of the 10.000,00 MT from the rental of the family home in the city of Maputo. She has never had a loan with another bank. This will be her first loan with Hluvuku in the amount of 15.000,00MT for the purchase of construction materials (cement, sand, blocks, etc. ) with the goal of continuing work on the construction of her concrete block home. She learned about Hluvuku through friends and colleagues who had received loans through the organization. Manuela plans to pay the loan without any problems in order to have access to future loans to finish her home. She dreams of seeing her home finished and later equipped.
