Ecelina's story

Ecelina was born in the city of Maputo, in the province of the same name in southern Mozambique. She is married and the mother of three children, all of whom go to school. She went to school through the tenth grade but had to drop out because of financial difficulties. She lives with her family in a home they own, and isn't financially responsible for anyone but her children.

She's always lived in Boane, in the province of Maputo. She's been making tools in Macaté for more than two years and she and earns about 13,000 meticals a month. Together with her husband's earnings, they are able to cover their household expenses and save some in their bank account (BIM).

She has never had loans from other banks. She learned about Hluvuku from friends who are also clients of the institution. This is her fifth loan with Hluvuku, in the amount of 25,000 meticals, which she will use to buy construction materials (iron, sand, stone, sheet metal, cement, etc.) to continue work on her house. She hopes to ask for further loans from Hluvuku to finish her house so she can provide her family with a more comfortable life.
