Renaldo Baptista's story

Renaldo Baptista P. was born in the city of Maputo. He is 40 years old and married, with a one-year-old son. He attended school through the tenth grade. He does not financially support any other family members.
He lives in the Liberdade neighborhood (15 km from Boane) and has worked at the Pequenos Libombos Dam as a water oibserver for 17 years. He currently earns 5,300 MT, which he uses to support his family and pay off his loans.
This is his fourth loan with Hluvuku. The other loans were all used to build his house with standard materials. He borrowed 10,000 MT, 14,000 MT, and 14,500 MT.
The current loan of 20,000 MT will also be used to purchase building materials. He's never had a loan with another bank and heard about Hluvuku through colleagues at work.
He is committed to making his payments on time so that in the future, after the house is finished, he can buy a vehicle for personal use.
