Luisa belongs to a group selling telephone credits in Nhamatanda, Mozambique, established through our partner AJODEMO’s Disability Rights and Enterprise Training programme.

Luisa has been disabled since a childhood accident, but never received any kind of assistive device, so she has always made do with a sturdy stick carved from a branch.

Luisa, along with her older children who are working for local farmers, supports the whole family, including her elderly mother and 4 children she is bringing up as a single parent. 

Luisa is very happy that she belongs to a group with other disabled people who are supportive and successful. They are working hard to do well in the phone credit business and have been able to save money after sharing the profits each week.
