Carolina's story

Carolina was born in the province of Inhambane. She completed school through the 7th grade. She is single and 42 years old. She lives in her own home with her family and supports a niece who lives with her.

For over 10 years she has worked at the social club of the EDM (Mozambique electric utility) as an assistant. She works from 7am to 5pm and receives a salary that she uses for household expenses and construction of her home. In additional to her work she has had overtime which she will also use to pay back her loan in an intent to pay it off more quickly and have access to another one.

This is her first loan with Hluvuku, in the amount of 15.000.00mt, which she will use to purchase construction materials (cement, blocks, and sand) in order to finish the interior walls of her living room. She is confident that she will pay off the loan without any difficulties, despite the lack of water that makes her construction project more difficult.
