Silvano Mateus B. was born in Massaco, Boane, in 1972. He only studied until eight grade. In 1986 he joined a troop to train as a militiaman, returning in 1987.



He quit his studies because he had to change shifts, and the conditions were not conducive to continuing his studies.



He lived with his parents until he was 19 years of age, and at 26, he started having a girlfriend, marrying officially once 35 years old.



He currently has four kids, the eldest 14 years old.



He has already worked in several organizations, such as Ara Sul (1989-1995), CMC (1998-2000), Trac Africa (2000-2005), currently working for Bananalândia as a driver.



He has already worked in commerce, traveling to the north of the country to buy beans and corn for resale in Maputo. The results of the sale were not satisfactory, and he later chose to cease this effort.



He got to know Hluvuku-Adsema thanks to his wife. He approached them and asked for credit in the amount of 16000 meticais, and plans to enlarge his house.



For him, credit is a viable, highly progressive fund for rural and urban communities.



In the future, he plans to ask for credit to finish his construction effort.
