Angelina Maivasse's story

Angelina Maivasse B. was born in Boane District, Maputo Province, in the south of Mozambique. She is a single mother of an 8-year-old son who attends school. She completed 10th grade but didn't continue attending school due to her financial circumstances.

She lives in her own house with her family and doesn't support anyone besides her son. She's never left her native city, and she has had her own business selling chickens for over ten years. She does not have employees and has monthly earnings of 4,000 meticais. She uses these for household expenses, while managing to save a portion in her bank account.

She has never taken loans from other banks, and learned of Hluvuku through her neighbor who is a client of this institution. This is her fifth loan with Hluvuku. The amount of the loan is 20,000 meticais, which she plans to use to purchase construction materials (cement, sheet metal, beams, and other items) to continue her construction project. She is committed to repaying on time in order to obtain other loans in the future. She plans to request new loans to expand her sales stand.
