Deolinda's story

Deolinda is a lady who lives in her own house with her family. She was born in the province of Maputo, is 31 years of age, and is in a common-law marriage.

She is the mother of two daughters, who are minors; one attends primary school and the other one is not yet school age. She is also responsible for a sister.

She is a merchant who sells hair pieces and items for women. Wanting to enlarge her business, she requested this loan with the purpose of acquiring hair pieces and extensions to sell.

This is her first loan. Her dream is to buy a car, which would be a help in her business, and to finish the construction of her house.
