Lusidia's story

Lusidia was born in the district of Matutuine in the province of Maputo. She has one child who is still underage.
She currently lives in the tourist region of Ponta de Ouro in the district of Matutuine. She carries out small scale commerce in her establishment and manages to obtain a profit which she uses to feed her family and to save some money in the bank (BCI).
Lusidia came to know of Hluvuku-Adsema through conversations with her parents and siblings. She decided to get closer in order to request clarification on the process for becoming a Hluvuku client and to benefit from financing to carry out her projects.
She became a client in 2010. Her first loan was for the amount of 8,000 metical (MZN) to purchase cement to make cement blocks, her second was to purchase products to sell in her commercial establishment, buying sodas and alcoholic beverages. With the current loan of 15,000 MZN she intends to purchase construction materials (cement and payment of labour) to finish building her home.
She intends to see the build of her house and commercial establishment completed and for this she will count on Hluvuku-Adsema for further loans.
