Felicita Alberto's story

Felicita Alberto T. is a native of Chiconela, a province of Gaza in the south of Mozambique. She is 51 years old, married, and the mother of 4 children with ages 30, 29, 26, and 22 respectively. She only supports her granddaughter who lives with her.

Felicita studied until the 10th grade and stopped when she moved too far from school and did not have transportation. She moved from the province of Gaza when she finished 4th grade and came with her family to Maputo. In 1978 she was married. In her walk of life she has worked in an ONG as an assistant accountant 10 years ago.

Felicita lives off her business of selling meat. She has been the owner of her business for 7 years. She buys 1 kg of meet for 65MT and sells it for 110MT. She has a monthly income of 15,000MT. This is her first loan through Hluvuku and with Kiva, and she was introduced to Hluvuku through friends who were already clients.

Felicita has plans for the future to construct a butcher shop and a grocery store given that in the area where she conducts her activities no butcher shop exists today.
