Inacio Francisco's story

Inácio was born in the central province of Sofala in the Marromeu district. He is 33 years old, married, and has two children ages 3 and 7. His older child attends school. He completed a degree in Elementary Education 13 years ago in a school in the Manhica district. He teaches at the elementary school in Boane, earning 7.500,00MT per month, which he uses to support his wife and children. He owns his own home in Campoane in the Boane district.

He left Marromeu along with his parents in 1988 to move to Boane and he built his own home in 2000. He previously had a loan to purchase consumer goods through a commercial bank (BIM) and decided not to continue with the bank for additional loans because he had faced difficulties making payments beyond his means for a long time.

Upon learning about Hluvuku from colleagues, he decided to request a loan. This loan is for 12.000,00MT for the purchase of construction materials (cement, sand, etc.) He plans to pay back the loan without any problems in order to have access to future loans with the goals of finishing his house and equipping it.
