Manuel Isabel's story

Manuel Isabel was born in the city of Maputo, Maputo Province in southern Mozambique. He is married and has two children who are 6 years old and another who is 7 months old. Manuel attends 12th grade and never stopped studying. He lives in his own house with his family and supports no one else. Manuel has never left Maputo District and only moved to Boane after he was married. He has worked as a police officer for six years and has a salary of 5,500 meticais per month, which he uses for household expenses and construction on his home. He also saves some money. He has never had loans from other banks, and learned about Hluvuku through his mother. This is Manuel's fourth loan with Hluvuku. He is asking for 12,000 meticais to buy construction materials (stone, iron, sand, blocks and other items) to continue construction on his house. He promises to make his payments promptly so he can get other loans in the future. He intends to ask for more loans to finish his house, which is one of his biggest dreams.
