Sansao's story

Sansao was born in the District of Namaacha. He is 26 years old and finished ninth grade. He lives with his partner in his own home. He has two children, and financially supports his mother and two nephews, who live with him. He saves 1,000 meticals a month in his bank account, as he gets extra work as a mechanic. He works as a security guard in the company G4S, taking the 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. shift one day and the 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. shift the next. He has worked there for more than six years and uses his salary to cover household expenses and the construction on his house. This is his fourth loan with Hluvuku, in the amount of 18,000 meticals, which he will use to purchase construction materials (cement, iron, beams, sheet metal, etc.) to finish roofing his house. In the future, he'd like to buy a minibus to transport passengers.
