Victorino comes from the province of Inhambane. He's 39 years old and married, and he has three children. He's also responsible for his mother-in-law who lives in his house.
He has been a gardener for over ten years and earns a monthly salary which he uses for his household and construction expenses. With this loan he intends to purchase construction supplies, namely cement, bricks and iron, so he can continue building his house. This is his fifth loan with Hluvuku. The four previous loans were also for the same purpose, since he's been building his house little by little.
He's confident that he'll repay the loan ahead of schedule so he can apply for other loans, because his biggest dream is to finish construction and also buy some furniture.

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.
