Rosa's story

Rosa was born in the district of Boane in the province of Maputo in southern Mozambique. She is married and is the mother of 2 children, who are in school. She started her degree in teaching but stopped due to lack of time. She lives in her own home with her family and also supports 2 nephews who live with her.

She has been a teacher for more than 12 years and has a salary of 10,500 meticals, which she puts towards her home's expenses. She also saves some in her bank account in the BIM bank.

She has already had a loan with the BIM bank in the amount of 50,000 meticals, which she managed to pay back without any problems. She became familiar with Hluvuku through a friend who is also a client of the institution. This is her third loan, and it is for 18,000 meticals. She will use it to buy construction materials for her home (sand, cement, iron, rock, etc.). Her previous loans were for 17,000 and 23,412 meticals, which she put towards her home.

She promises to make her payments on time. In the future, she hopes to buy a vehicle, for which she is planning on requesting more loans from Hluvuku.
