He owns a small fishing boat, which he's been using for fishing for more than 10 years. He doesn't have any employees, but his wife helps him with the business. He earns about 5,000 meticals a month, which he uses to cover household expenses and to build his house. Besides fishing, he'd like to have a business selling thatch for houses. This is his third loan with Hluvuku, in the amount of 20,000 meticals, with which he intends to purchase construction materials (sand, cinder blocks, cement, etc.). His previous loans (in the amounts of 8,000, 10,000, and 12,000 meticals) were invested in the business. In the future, he'd like to get his driver's license.
