A loan of $600 helped to buy mats and coconuts for resale.


Elisa's story

Elisa is single and lives in her own house with her 3 minor children. She makes a living in the sale of various products.

She is requesting this loan to buy mats and coconuts for resale. The products are bought in the Inhambane province, about 400 km away, and resold in Maputo.

Her dream is to finish building her house and build a grocery store in her house, so she can settle and do business close to her children.

Her biggest challenge is schooling her children.
