A loan of $650 helped continue with a construction project by buying sand, cement, and posts.

Marta's story

Marta was born in Namaacha, in the Maputo province of Mozambique. She is 56 years old and is married with four grown children, all of whom are in school. She also cares for a grandson who lives with her.

Marta has worked at the Xissaka Hotel for more than 8 years, earning money that she uses to cover household expenses and also for a home construction project. With this loan she would like to continue with this project by buying sand, cement, and posts. This is her fifth loan with Hluvuku [Kiva Field Partner].

In the future, she would like to finish the construction and furnish her house so that her family can live comfortably.
