Kiva.org Announces Partnership with Hluvuku, Mozambique

Kiva.org today announced its latest African Field Partner, Hluvuku (Hluvuku-Adsema Fundo de Credito Male yeru) in Mozambique.

Hluvuko's mission is to improve the socio-economic conditions of the population in the Matutuine district and contiguous areas, providing sustainable services to low income people, considering the viability of the initiatives.

The Matutuine district has a very low population density, of approx. 6.5 inhabitants per square kilometer, and was severely affected by the civil war. It also has a high incidence of the HIV/AIDS virus. Hluvuku was established in 2001 and is a non-profit non-government organization.

Kiva.org looks forward to a successful partnership relationship with Hluvuku and is pleased to be connecting Kiva Lenders with entrepreneurs in Mozambique.
