A loan of $475 helped to purchase construction supplies in order to continue building her house (sand, rafters, iron, cement, etc.).


Isabel's story

She was born in the district of Chibuto, province of Gaza, southern Mozambique. She is single and doesn't have children. She never had the opportunity to study because her parents lacked financial conditions. She lives with her family in a house she owns and does not support anyone else.
She has worked at Umbeluzi Rural Station for over 19 years and earns a salary of 3.650mt a month. She uses it to pay for home expenses and saves part of it in her bank account.
She has hever had loans in other banks. This is her second loan with Hluvuku. It is for 12.000mt, which she intends to use to purchase construction supplies in order to continue building her house (sand, rafters, iron, cement, etc.). The first loan was for 12.000mt, for personal housing.
She pledges to repay as scheduled. In the future she intends to finish the construction and also build rooms for renting. For that purpose she plans to request more loans from Hluvuku.
