Anselmo was born in the city of Maputo, located in the province of the same name, in southern Mozambique. He is married and has 5 children, 4 of whom attend school. He attended school through high school but stopped due to a lack of financial resources. He owns the home where he lives with his family and he also supports his parents by sending them money for expenses.

He has worked in the Ministry of Justice in the Boane District for more than 13 years and has a salary of 7.857.00mt monthly, which he uses for household expenses and saves a bit in his bank account (BIM).

He previously had a loan in other banks (BIM) which he used to start construction and he paid it without any difficulty. Later he learned about Hluvuku through a colleague who is also a client. This is his first loan with Hluvuku, in the amount of 20.000.00mt, which he will use to purchase construction materials for his home (window frames, panes, cement, textured paint, beams, etc.) in order to continue construction. He promises to make payments on time. In the future he plans to finish his home and will request additional loans from Hluvuku for that purpose.

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.
