Maria Alberto
Maria Alberto P. was born in the province of Inhambane, one of the provinces in the south of Mozambique. She is 37 years old, married, and the mother of one son who is 20 years old. She lives in her own home. Besides her son she supports her sister and sends money to her every month.

Maria studied until the 3rd grade and stopped because of poor conditions given that she lost her parents very early and was obliged to live with others. She left the province of Inhambane for Maputo to live in the district of Boane in the company of her uncle.

Maria lives off her business which she has had for more than 15 years. She has an establishment that opens at 8:00am and closes at 6:00pm. She sells primarily wine. She makes her purchases in the city.

This is Maria's third loan with Hluvuku and her first with Kiva. The first two were for 8,000MT and 10,000MT respectively. She has plans for the future to solicit a loan so she can construct a kitchen.
