Ananias's story

He was born in the Boane district in Maputo province in the south of Mozambique. He is married and has one sone who is two-years-old. He finished 11 years of schooling and continues to study. He lives in a house given to him by his mother who lives with him. He has never left Boane. He has worked as a teacher for two years and has a monthly salary of 4,128.30 metiais (Mozambique currency) which he uses for household expenses and saves some for his bank account.

He never would take out the loan with other banks. He heard about Hluvuku through relatives who are also customers and this is his first loan in Hluvuku in the amount of 20,000 meticais. He plans to use it to buy construction materials for his house project (stone, sand, cement, iron among others. He is confident that he will be able to make the payments without difficulties and dreams of finishing his house and moving in to offer better comfort to his family and so that he can take out more loans with Hlvuku.
