A loan of $1,300 helped buy a refrigerator and a set of sofas for her house.


Miquelina's story

Miquelina was born in Chokwe, in the Gaza province of Mozambique. She is 44 years old and lives with her husband. She has seven children, four of whom are grown, and she doesn't provide for anyone else besides her family. For more than eight years she's worked as an attendant at a mineral water company, earning money that she uses to cover household expenses and also for a home construction project. With this loan she would like to buy a refrigerator and a set of sofas for her house. This is her fourth loan with Hluvuku [Kiva Field Partner]. In the future, Miquelina would like to finish the construction project, buy a car for her family, and start a business raising chickens.
