Xitique

Maputo, Mozambique


Xitique envisions the establishment of an institution to support street traders in Maputo by providing access to funds, storage facilities and community spaces for street traders. The project takes its name from an endogenous financial practice of peer-to-peer lending that is common amongst members of a small community. Programmatically, Xitique is a bank; a financial bank, a materials bank and an ideas bank. The project aims to rebuild trust by offering an alternative to support the country to investors and NGOs without politically endorsing the government in the short term but promoting civic engagement between the Municipality and traders in the long run.
