Sábado Samuel
Sábado Samuel M. was born in the province of Gaza. He is 39 years old and the father of 8 children, who are all in school. Besides his children, he also supports his paternal grandparents by sending them food supplies.

Sábado studied until the 4th grade and then his parents made him stop because their zone only went until the 4th grade and to continue meant to leave the zone. So they prohibited him from continuing so that he would stay and take care of the cattle.

Sábado moved from Gaza province to Maputo when he got very sick and went to stay at a sister’s house. When he got better he was able to get a job with Mozambique railways, which ended when the company decided to reduce the number of employees. He was given severance pay and with that money he purchased a plot of land where he built his house and a small business raising chickens and selling basic goods. With this loan he intends to increase his stock. Sábado is able to earn a monthly income of 15,000.00 MT, but is still not able to save any money.

This is Sábado’s third loan through Hluvuku and his first with Kiva. His dream is to increase his business so that in the future he can open another establishment in a neighboring zone.
