A loan helped to buy construction materials.


Marta's story

Marta is 41 years old and was born in Maputo province. She is single and the mother of three children who are 20, 16, and 13 years old and all attend school. Marta works as a bottler at a water company.

She plans to use the loan to buy construction materials such as cement, sand, gravel, blocks, and boards to continue work on her house. She is a repeat borrower and used the previous loans for the same project.

Marta dreams of finishing her house and furnishing it to make it comfortable.
