Inacio Salvador's story

Inácio B. is originally from Nhagotou, Zavala District, in Mozambique. He is 55 years old, married and the father of seven children, all adults who work and don't live with him anymore. He lives with his wife who works as an administrative assistant and they support two grandchildren.

He's been working as a gardener for the past 5 years, from 7AM to 3PM every day, and makes 2052,00MT (U$70) per month. This is Inacio's first loan with the institution and he's asking for 15.000,00MT (U$525) in order to buy cement, sand and other materials to fix his house, that was damaged in a militar explosion that killed more than 100 people in the city of Maputo. He hopes to pay this fast so he can make other loans to start his own chicken raising business in the near future.
