A loan of $950 helped to purchase construction supplies for her home (stone, cement, cinder blocks, iron, etc.).


Elisa's story

She was born in the district of Boane, province of Maputo, southern Mozambique. She is married and has a son who still attends school. She never had the opportunity to go to school because her parents lacked financial conditions. She lives with her family in a house she owns and does not support anyone else.
She has been a businesswoman at the Chissano market for over 21 years and earns an income of about 6.000mt 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 a friend who is also a client of this institution. This is her second loan with Hluvuku. It is for 25.000mt, which she intends to use to purchase construction supplies for her home (stone, cement, cinder blocks, iron, etc.). The first loan was for 21.000mt, for the same purpose.
She pledges to repay as scheduled. In the future she plans to finish building her home and to expand her business. For that reason she intends to request more loans from Hluvuku.
