A loan of $400 helped purchase construction materials.


Artur Daniel's story

Artur Daniel Z. was born in Inhambane. He’s 43 years old. He’s married and has three children, an 18-year-old girl, a 13-year-old girl, and a 1-year-old boy. The two oldest are currently going to school.
Artur had to drop school when he was 10 due to the large distance that separated his home from the school where he studied.
Besides his daughters, Artur is responsible for his two brothers who study in the capital city, sending them around 500.00MT, every month.

Artur left Inhambane with his uncle for the Vila de Namaacha municipality, next to the border with Swazilandia to find a job. Soon after he arrived, he found a job as a helper in the Civil Registry of the District of Namaacha, where they offered a salary of 1,200.00MT, but thanks to his hard work and good will towards the job, he was promoted to administrative assistant where they offered a salary of 2,600.00 MT working from 7:30am to 3:30pm on week days and from 6am to 10am on the weekends in case there was a wedding.

This is not the first time he requests for a loan from Hluvuku-Adsema, and he also obtained a loan from Banco Comercial (BIM millennium, for 21,000.00MT). This is the fourth time he requests for a loan from Hluvuku-Adsema. He will use the 10,000.00MT, to use to purchase construction material. The first loans (5,500.00MT; 7,000.00MT and 10,000.00MT) we also used for this same activity.

He is confident he won’t have any problems paying for this loan, and he also wants to request for a new loan to help his wife to improve her business.
