Rita's story

She was born in the town of Matola, province of Maputo, southern Mozambique. She is separated and has a son who still attends school. She attended literacy classes. She lives with her family in a house she owns. She also supports two nephews who live with her. She has never left Maputo. She has been a businesswoman for over 22 years and earns an income of about 12.000mt a month. She uses it to pay for home expenses and saves part of it in her bank account. She has never had loans in other banks. She first heard of Hluvuku through friends who are also clients of this institution. This is her eighth loan with Hluvuku. It is for 15.000mt, which she intends to use to purchase loads of used clothing in order to increase the amount of her merchandise. She is committed to repaying without any difficulties. In the future she will request more loans from Hluvuku in order to build a room for renting.
