Isaura's story

Isaura was born in the district of Boane in the province of Maputo in southern Mozambique. She is a single mother of one 2-year-old son. She finished her bachelor's degree. She lives in her own home with her family and also supports her parents who live with her.

She never left Maputo. She has been a full-time employee in the community elementary school, "Casa de gaiato," for more than 13 years. She makes a monthly income of 21,198.10 meticals, which she puts towards her home's expenses. She also saves some in her bank account in the BIM bank.

She had a loan with BIM for 90,000 meticals, which she put towards building her home. She became familiar with Hluvuku through neighbors that are also clients of the institution. This is her first loan with Hluvuku in the amount of 15,000 meticals, which she will use to buy construction materials to finish her home (stone, iron, sand, etc.).

She dreams about finishing her home and furnishing it, for which she plans on requesting more loans from Hluvuku.
