Alexandre's story

Alexandre is from Chibuto, in the province of Gaza, in southern Mozambique. He is married and the father of 4 children, who range in age from 4 to 11. He finished studying through the third grade and stopped due to the lack of financial resources. He lives in his own home with his family and doesn't support anyone besides them.

He left Gaza for Maputo in search of employement. He has worked as a security guard in the Agro-Alta company for more than a year. He makes 6,000 meticals per month, which he puts towards his home's expenses. He also saves some in his bank account in the BIM bank.

He has never had a loan with another bank. He became familiar with Hluvuku through friends who are also clients of the institution. This is his second loan in the amount of 15,000 meticals, which he will use to buy construction materials (bricks, cement, sand, etc.) to do construction on his home. His first loan was for 10,200 meticals and also went towards his home.

His dream is to finish his house to provide better comfort to his family and to improve his business, for which he plans on requesting more loans from Hluvuku.
