Pedro
Pedro was born in Maputo, a city in Maputo Province in southern Mozambique. He is married and has two children; one attends school and the other is not school age yet. Pedro is in tenth grade. He lives in his own house with his family and supports his grandmother, who lives with him.

He has never left his hometown. Pedro has worked as a gardener at Maputo's central hospital for more than three years, and he owns a business selling various foods. His income is around 4,700 meticais per month, which he uses for household expenses. He also saves some money in his bank account (at BIM).

He had a 26,000 meticais loan from BIM to buy title to his land, and he paid off the loan without any trouble. He learned about Hluvuku through a friend who is also a customer of this institution. This is Pedro's first Hluvuku loan, and he is asking for 15,000 meticais to buy products (fish, potatoes, juices, rice, peanuts and other items) to increase his inventory.

He intends to finish his studies and to build a house so he can make his family more comfortable. To do these things, he will ask Hluvuku for more loans.
