Elicha's story

Elicha was born in the city of Maputo in the province of the same name in southern Mozambique. He is single and has no children and is in his first year studying psychology at the Universidade Pedagógica. He has never left his hometown and he lives at home with his family and supports his brothers and sisters who also live with him.

He is a teacher and has earned a monthly salary of 5,050 MZN [Mozambique Meticais] for two years, which goes to his household expenses and also some savings in his personal bank account.

He has never taken out a loan from any other bank and became aware of Hluvuku [Kiva field partner] through some friends who are also Hluvuku clients. This will be his first loan with Hluvuku in the amount of 10,000 MZN [Mozambique Meticais] with which he plans to buy construction materials (bricks, steel, cement, etc.) so she can continue working on his house.

He plans to take out further loans from Hluvuku in the future to finish his studies and improve his family's living conditions.
