Boane, Maputo, Mozambique / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $900 helped to purchase construction supplies for his home (rafters, stone, cement, cinder blocks, iron, etc.).


Luis's story

He was born in the town of Xai-Xai, province of Gaza, southern Mozambique. He is a widower and has 12 children, 7 of which still attend school. He went to college and quit for lack of time. He lives with his family in a house he owns and does not support anyone else. He got transferred from Xai-Xai to Maputo on a work assignment and set up residence in the district of Boane. He has been a land surveyor for the Umbeluzi Rural Station for over 32 years and earns a salary of 11.000mt a month. He uses it to pay for home expenses and saves part of it in his bank account. He has had loans in other banks (Barclays) and managed to repay without difficulties. He first heard of Hluvuku through a friend who is also a client of this institution. This is his second loan with Hluvuku. It is for 24.000mt, which he intends to use to purchase construction supplies for his home (rafters, stone, cement, cinder blocks, iron, etc.). The first loan was for 30.000mt, also for the same purpose. He pledges to repay as scheduled. In the future he plans to finish building his house in order to provide more comfort for his family. For that reason he intends to request more loans from Hluvuku.
