A loan of $500 helped to buy merchandise to sell at his general store.

Domingos Francisco's story

28 year-old Domingos Francisco Z. was born in Maputo, Mozambique, where he still lives. He is married and the father of four children, ages 8, 7, 5 and one month. In addition to supporting his family, he is responsible for supporting one nephew, who lives with them. Domingos's studies were interrupted in 10th grade, due to his family's financial constraints.

Domingos' general store, a business he's had for the past 10 years, brings him 1000,00 mt per day. This is his 6th loan with Hluvuku, and he plans to invest it in increasing his stock--as he has done with all previous loans. With the help of credit, Domingos hopes to be able to open a new store, in the future.
