Revulino was born in the province of Gaza in southern Mozambique. He is 30 years old and lives with his family in a home they own. He has one school-aged son and also takes care of a niece who lives with him.
He works for the city as a policeman and uses his income to cover household expenses and in building a house for himself and his family. But the cost of living is increasing every day, so he is requesting a loan to finish part of the construction. This is his third loan with Hluvuku; he used the two previous loans for the house, too.
In the future he plans to pay off this loan so he can take out another to plant a beautiful garden outside his house.

Revulino nasceu na Província de Gaza, no Sul de Moçambique. Tem 30 anos, vive na casa própria com a sua família e é pai de 1 filho que vai à escola. Responsabiliza-se também pela sobrinha que vive com ele em sua casa.
É funcionário do Conselho Municipal (é polícia) e aufere um valor que aplica nas despesas da casa e da sua obra, pois está a construir uma casa para si e para a sua família. Mas como o custo de vida eleva-se a cada dia que passa, ele solicitou um empréstimo para concluir as mínimas partes da sua obra. Este é já o seu 3º empréstimo na Hluvuku, e os 2 anteriores foram também para habitação.
Futuramente pretende concluir o empréstimo para aceder a outro e plantar um lindo jardim no quintal da sua casa.

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.
