Cornelio's story

Cornelio was born in the province of Cabo Delgado, in northern Mozambique. He is married and the father of 6 children, 5 of whom attend school. He attended school through the 9th grade, but did not finish due to financial circumstances. He owns the home where he lives with his family and he does not support anyone else. He left his homeland of Cabo Delgado for Maputo for military service. He has been in the military for more than 42 years and has a pension of 5.000.00mt per month. He uses it to pay for household expenses and he saves some in his bank account. He previously had loans through Associação PFUCANE and was able to pay them off without any issues. He learned about Hluvuku through friends who are also clients. This is his 5th loan with Hluvuku, in the amount of 14.000.00mt, which he will use to purchase construction materials for his home (stone, sand, beams, metal panels, etc.). The prior loans were for 2.500.000mt, 8.000.00mt, 10.000.00mt, and 13.000.00mt, also for the construction of his home. He plans to finish his home and equip it to provide better comfort to his family. He will request additional loans from Hluvuku.
