Osvaldo Luis's story

Osvaldo Luís Gonhele was born Matola, in the province of Maputo, Mozambique. He is 26 years old, single and has no children. He finished 12th grade and is getting to go to college. He lives in his own house and supports two younger brothers that live with him.

He owns his business and has been working 10 hours a day for the past 6 years, with no other employees. His best selling products are beer, refreshments and wines. He makes between $280 and $350 per month, money that he uses to support himself and his brothers, and save.

He is asking for $700 in order to invest in his business, and satisfy his customer's demands for new items now that the winter is coming up, improving his profit. He is committed to pay it back on time and in the future hopes to get another loan to make improvements to his house.
