Alice's story

She was born in the district of Boane, province of Maputo, southern Mozambique. She's single and has four children - only one of them is still in school, the others are adults. She completed 8th grade and studied to become a teacher. She lives with her family in a house she owns and does not support anyone else.
She has been a teacher for over 30 years and earns a salary of 4.000mt. She uses it to pay for home expenses and also 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 fourth loan with Hluvuku. It is for 10.000mt, which she intends to use to purchase construction supplies fin order to build her house (bricks, cement, sand, rocks, iron, etc). The previous loans were for 10.000mt, 10.000mt and 10.000mt, for housing expenses.
She pledges to make her repayments as scheduled. In the future she intends to finish building and furnishing her home, and for that purpose she plans to request more loans from Hluvuku.
