A loan helped to buy construction materials.

Benildo's story

Born in Namaacha, in the Maputo province, he is 32 years old. He lives with his spouse and is the father of one child, who is a minor and isn’t in school yet.

He lives in his own house with his family. Wanting to expand the construction of his home, he went to Hluvuku to ask for his third loan with the goal of getting construction material such as zinc sheeting, cement, and sand for finishing his construction in order to give his family more comfort.

He is a repeat borrower since, with his previous loan, he invested in getting construction materials to get his project up. In the future, he plans to get goods for his home and have a grocery store.
