Tomas Paipe
Tomas Paipe S. was born in the city of Inhambane in the province of the same name in southern Mozambique. He is a widower and the father of three children, two of whom attend school. He attended school through the 6th grade, but had to leave school because his family no longer had the economic resources for him to continue. He lives in his own house with his family and isn't financially responsible for anyone else.
He left Inhambane for Boane in order to fulfill his compulsory military service, and later built his house there. He has retired from the military and receives a pension from the Ministry of the Defense in the amount of 4397 meticals, which he uses to cover household expenses. Occasionally he is able to save a little in his bank account.
He's never received loans from other banks. He learned about Hluvuku from friends who are also Hluvuku clients. This is his fourth loan, in the amount of 15,000 meticals, which he intends to use to purchase construction materials (sand, stone, cement, etc.) to continue improving his house. His previous loans were for 2500, 5000, and 15,000 meticals, which he also used on his dwelling.
He's committed to paying this loan off on time so that he'll be eligible for others in the future. He intends to request additional loans to finish his house.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
