A loan helped to buy and sell staple products.

Elisa's story

Elisa was born in the city of Maputo. She is 46 years old, lives with her partner, and is the mother of four children, of whom two are adults and two are in school at the secondary and primary levels. She is not responsible for anyone else. She works for herself as a retailer.
She lives in a house she owns, and with the amount of the loan she intends to buy products like rice, corn flour, oil, broth, sugar and spaghetti for resale.
She is a repeat borrower; with the previous loan she invested in the same business. In the future she intends to guarantee her children's education through college.
