He finished studying through the third grade and stopped due to the lack of financial resources. He lives in his own home with his family and doesn't support anyone besides them.

He left Gaza for Maputo in search of employement. He has worked as a security guard in the Agro-Alta company for more than a year. He makes 6,000 meticals per month, which he puts towards his home's expenses. He also saves some in his bank account in the BIM bank.

He has never had a loan with another bank. He became familiar with Hluvuku through friends who are also clients of the institution. This is his second loan in the amount of 15,000 meticals, which he will use to buy construction materials (bricks, cement, sand, etc.) to do construction on his home. His first loan was for 10,200 meticals and also went towards his home.

His dream is to finish his house to provide better comfort to his family and to improve his business, for which he plans on requesting more loans from Hluvuku.

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.
