View original language description ↓
Sérgio Abia M. is 42 years old and was born in Boane, a district in Maputo province. He is married and the father of two children, 2 and 12 years old. In addition to his children, he takes care of his sister-in-law who lives with them.


Sérgio studied though 9th grade, then stopped because financial conditions did not allow him to continue. Sérgio has never moved from this city. He spent his childhood with his family. He works as an electrician at Mozambique Electricity, a public utility company, from 7:30am to 3:30pm. He makes a monthly salary of 7,500 Meticais (MZN) and saves 500 MZN.


This is Sérgio's second loan request with Hluvuku (Kiva's Field Partner) and his first with Kiva. His first loan was for 13,000 MZN to purchase construction material, and this loan will be for additional construction material. Sérgio anticipates that he will not be able to complete the project with this loan. Thus, he intends to repay the loan early and predicts that he will request another loan of about 20,000 MZN to finish the job. Sérgio appears with his 2-year-old son in the photo.
