Nehemias Vasco
View original language description ↓
Nehemias Vasco C. was born on the 17th of April, 1952. He is a native of Magude and a son of a miner and homemaker. He attended school until the 7th grade and then moved to Germany, returning in 1981 having studied up until the equivalent of the 9th grade. After returning, he joined EQUIMEP in the Niassa province. He worked until 1991 and then transferred jobs to the municipal counsel of Maputo, formerly the executive counsel, where he worked until December 2005. At this time, he stopped working due to an infirmary and retired.

Since 1998, he developed small businesses at his home until 2004, when he purchased a small commercial establishment at the Maguiguana Market where he works to this day. Through a friend who was a client of Male Yeru, he sought a loan of 600 dollars, which he used to reinforce his business, and payed it off without any problems. With the current loan of 800 dollars, he intends to increase his stock, which will allow him to meet his customers' demands. His goal is to open a small shop in his home to alleviate his movements from constant foot pain. His business makes a positive impact by suppling the population with food and employing a person who helps with sales. His income from the business allows him to support his childrens' studies at the university.

Nehemias Vasco C., nascido em 17 de Abril de 1952, natural de Magude, filho de Pai Mineiro e mãe domestica, estudou ate sétima classe e foi para Alemanha onde regressou em 1981 com equivalência de nona classe. Apos seu regresso, ingressou na EQUIMEP na provincia do Niassa, trabalhou ate 1991 quando mudou de emprego para o Conselho Municipal de Maputo Outrora Conselho Executivo onde trabalhou ate Dezembro de 2005 altura em que por motivo de doença teve que interromper o trabalho passando para o regime de aposentado.

Desde 1998 desenvolvia pequenos negócios em casa até 2004 altura em que comprou um pequeno estabelecimento comercial no Mercado Maguiguana onde até então desenvolve a sua actividade.
Por intermédio de um amigo seu e que era cliente da Male Yeru recorreu a um 1º empréstimo de 15 000,00mt com o qual reforçou o seu negócio, tendo concluido sem sobressalto. Com o empréstimo de 20 000,00MT pretende reforçar o stock o que lhe permite satisfazer a demanda e exigências dos seus clientes.
Tem como perspectiva abrir uma pequena mercearia em casa uma vez que tem problemas de dor dos pés o que até certo ponto limita lhe as suas deslocações.

Contudo, a sua actividade tem um impacto positivo uma vez que abastece as populações em alimentos para além de que com o rendimento consegue sustentar os estudos dos 2 filhos que estão na Universidade e dar emprego a uma pessoa que lhe ajuda nas vendas.
