A loan of $575 helped to purchase construction supplies for her house (cinder blocks, stone and cement).


Silgenia's story

She was born in Gaza. She is 25 years old, single and the mother of two children who don't attend school. She lives with her family in a house she owns. She is also responsible for her sister-in-law who lives with her. She is able to save some money every month because she gets help from her husband.
She moved to Maputo along with her uncle and soon she joined the Ministry of Defense. She is a police officer in the district of Namaacha. She earns an income which she uses to pay for home and construction expenses.
This is her first loan with Hluvuku. It is for 15.000mt, which she intends to use to purchase construction supplies for her house (cinder blocks, stone and cement) so that she can finish her construction project.
She is confident that she will make the repayments before schedule in order to obtain more loans. Her main goal is to advance in her studies and to be able to raise her children.
