A loan helped to buy construction materials.


Nelson's story

Nelson was born in the province of Inhambane. He is 32 and is in a common-law marriage. He works as security at a water company. He is the father of three children who are all minors. Two are attending primary school. He is not responsible for anyone else.

With the amount requested, he plans to buy construction materials, such as concrete blocks, sand, cement, and metal sheets, to continue work on his residence.

He is a repeat client, and with previous loans, he acquired home goods.

The client's dream is to open a stand as a way to increase his income.
