A loan of $800 helped continue to work on her construction project by buying materials like cement, sand, metal sheets and small stones.


Celina's story

Celina was born in Maputo, Mozambique. She is 34 years old and is a single mother to four children, all of whom are in school. She also cares for a niece who lives with her. Celina has run her own business for some time, and she uses her earnings to pay for household expenses. With this loan she hopes to continue working on a home construction project by buying materials such as cement, sand, metal sheets and small stones. This is her 6th loan with Hluvuku (Kiva Field Partner). In the future, Celina would like to finish this construction project, furnish her house, and open a grocery store that sells essential home goods. Her biggest challenge is to guarantee that her children will be able to attend school up to college.
