A loan of $375 helped to buy construction material to build family home.


Armando Salomão's story

Armando, 46 years old, was born in the city of Maputo and attended school until sixth grade. He is married and is a father of five children, of whom three have reached the age of majority and two are minors. In addition to his wife and children, he provides for a sister who is a student.

Armando is a tailor by profession, the owner of a tailor shop with two employees. He has a monthly liquid income of 5,000 MT.

This is his second loan with Hluvuku. He used to deal with Procredit, but he wound up discontinuing that because of the expenses incurred due to the distance between his home and that microfinancing bank.

With this loan, he plans to improve living conditions for his family, and he dreams of requesting another loan to furnish his home.
