Florinda's story

Florinda was born in Tete Province in northern Mozambique. She is married and has four children; three of them go to school. Florinda finished third grade and quit school because of financial problems. She lives in her own house with her family and supports her grandson, who lives with them.

She left Tete to move to Maputo in search of a job. Florinda receives a pension and has farmed for her family's consumption for 20 years. She has an income of 5,000 meticais per month, which she uses for household expenses. She also saves some money in her bank account with the help of her pension.

Florinda has never had loans from other banks. She learned about Hluvuku through a friend who is also a customer, and this is Florinda's second Hluvuku loan. She is asking for 21,500 meticais to buy home construction materials (sand, cement, blocks, iron, stone and other items). The first loan was for 17,000 meticais and was also used for her house.

She dreams of finishing her house and opening a small grocery store. To do this, she intends to ask Hluvuku for more loans.
