A loan helped to repair a car.


Joao's story

João was born in the province of Maputo and is 36 years old and single. He is not yet a father and is not responsible for anyone else. He is a teacher at a complete primary school. He lives in a house he owns and wants to replace his car that was in an accident. He is asking for his sixth loan in order to acquire a car frame.

He is a repeat borrower; with the previous loans he invested in buying consumer goods. In the future he intends to have a salon for events.

Translated from Portuguese by Kiva volunteer Tricia Perry.


This loan is special because:
