She has never had loans from any other banks and came to know Hluvuku through a friend who is also a client of this institution. This is her fourth loan with Hluvuku , for the amount of 20,000.00 MZN with which she intends to buy materials for the construction of her house (stone, iron, sand, cement and others). Her previous loans were for 10,000 MZN, 15,000.00 MZN and 20,000.00 MZN which she also used for her dwelling.

She commits to duly paying off her loan and in future aims to build a commercial establishment because currently she uses a rented one, for which she intends to solicit further loans from Hluvuku.
