Timane's story

Timane was born in the province of Cabo Delgado in northern Mozambique. He is married nd the father of three children 8, 12, and 14 years of age. All of his children attend school. He went to school through the ninth grade but had to drop out because of financial difficulties. He lives with his family in a home they own, and isn't financially responsible for anyone else.
He left Cabo Delgado for Maputo, specifically the district of Boane, in order to continue his studies, and ended up settling down. He's worked in a cement plant for more than 7 years and earns a salary of 3,800 meticals a month, which he uses to cover household expenses. He is able to save a little in his bank account and his wife also contributes to the household income.
He's never had loans from other banks. He learned about Hluvuku from coworkers who are also clients of the institution. This is his first loan, in the amount of 10,000 meticals, which he will use to pay for the legal paperwork for his land, where he plans to start construction for his business.
He intends to pay off the loan without difficulty and request new loans from Hluvuku, which he will use to construct a building and start a business.
