Hortencia's story

Mrs. Hortencia was born in the province of Maputo. She's 29 years old, married, and is the mother of 3 young children, 2 of whom attend school. She's not responsible for anyone else.

She works in a fruit production company as an agricultural worker. She lives in her own house.

She's requesting a loan to buy construction materials such as cement and beams to continue with the construction of her house.

She's a return borrower, this being her 3rd loan. The previous ones were invested in the same work. Her dream is to complete the construction of her home to ensure comfort for her family.
