Samuel's story

He was born in the district of Boane, province of Maputo, southern Mozambique. He is a widower and has seven children, three of which attend school. He completed 4th grade and stopped when he joined the military in 1978. He lives with his family in a house he owns and also supports two grandchildren who live with him. He has been a security guard for Bananalândia and a receptionist for the Frelimo Party for over nine years. He earns a salary of 6.200mt a month. He uses it to pay for home expenses and saves part of it in his bank account. He has never had loans in other banks. He first heard of Hluvuku through a friend who is also a client of this institution. This is his third loan with Hluvuku. It is for 11.000mt, which he intends to use to purchase construction supplies in order to continue building his house (metal sheets, sand, rafters, iron, cement, etc.). The other loans were for 5.000mt and 15.000mt, for personal housing. He pledges to repay as scheduled. In the future he intends to finish building and furnishing his house. For that purpose he plans to request more loans from Hluvuku.
