Telma's story

Telma is married and has five children, all of whom attend school in the town of Maputo. She lives with her husband in a house she owns. She supports her children by sending money for their daily expenses and also gets help from her husband. She's in retail and sells various products. With the current loan she intends to purchase goods (chickens, cooking oil, peanuts, soap, fish, etc.) in order to stock up and diversify her merchandise. In the future she wishes to start a more profitable business in a more professional way, so that she can increase her profits. For that reason she pledges to repay the loan as scheduled so she can request more loans from Hluvuku. The challenge she faces is investing in her children's education all the way to a college degree.
