A loan helped to buy construction materials.


Armindo's story

Born in Morrumbene, in the Inhambane province, he is 37 years old and married. He is the father of five minor children, three of whom are in school. He is responsible for his niece, who is a minor.

He lives in his own house. Wanting to continue working on the construction of his home, he is asking for his second loan with the goal of getting construction material such as cement and sand in order to finish the work.

He is a repeat borrower since he invested in the same work with his previous loans. In the future he would like to get a vehicle and to build another house for his children.

Translated from Portuguese by Kiva volunteer Patricia Patton.
