Carlota

Mozambique
Boane, Maputo, Mozambique / General Store

A loan of $325 helped to purchase goods for selling (rice, sugar, beans, olive oil, salt, etc.).


Carlota's story

She's single and has five children, all of them adults. She lives in a house she owns and only supports two grandchildren who live with her. She's a trader who runs her own business selling essential goods. With the current loan she intends to purchase goods (rice, sugar, beans, olive oil, salt, etc.) so she can increase the quantity of her mechandise. In the future she wishes to build houses for renting in order to improve her family's income. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so she can request more loans from Hluvuku. Her challenge is the high cost of living and the well-being of her family.
