His wife has a business selling meat and helps her husband by sharing household expenses. Marquesa has a salary of 6,128 meticais per month, which he uses for household needs and saves some in his bank account (at Millenium Bim).

He had a loan with Millenium Bim and decided not to continue with them. He learned about Hluvuku through co-workers in the military who are also customers of this institution. This is his second loan. He is asking for 15,000 meticais to buy construction materials (zinc sheets, cement, beams, iron and other items) to continue construction work on his house. The previous loan was for 10,000 meticais and was for the same purpose.

He promises to pay this loan off on time so he will be able to take out others. In the future he would like to ask for more loans to continue improving his house, so he can offer his family better living conditions.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
