Joao is married and has 2 adult children. He owns the home where he lives with his family and he also supports his mother, who lives with him. He is a metalworker and also has a store. With this loan he plans to purchase products (rice, sugar, flour, cooking oil, beer, wine, etc.) in order to increase his inventory and meet his customers' needs. In the future he would like to become a large reseller in his area. He is confident he can do this because he has a storage container in his home. He promises to make his payments as scheduled in order to request additional loans from Hluvuku. The challenge he faces is to obtain sufficient funds to meet his needs.
