Antonio was born in the District of Boane, province of Maputo in the South of Mozambique, is single and has no children. He completed 12th grade and stopped his education due to a lack of financial means. He lives in his own house with his family and supports his brother who lives with him.

Antonio has never left Maputo, has been working as a secretary in human resources at Bananalandia for quite some time and has a salary of 4,950 meticals (MZN) a month, which he uses on household expenses and saves in his bank account.

He has never had loans from other banks. He learned of Hluvuku through a friend who is also a client and this is his second loan from Hluvuku for the amount of 10,000 MZN, with which he intends to purchase materials for the construction work on the house in which he lives (sand, stone, blocks, iron, sheet materials and others). His first loan was for 17,000 MZN to start the construction work.

He dreams of completing his house and furnishing it to provide greater comfort for his family, for which he intends to solicit 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.
