Rodrigo Jose's story

Rodrigo Jose was born in the city of Matola, Maputo Province, in southern Mozambique. He is married and father of 2 daughters who are married. He completed school through the 6th grade but dropped out due to his parents' financial situation. He owns the home where he lives with his family and he also supports a granddaughter who lives with him.

Rodrigo Jose has been a carpenter for more than 8 years and earns around 9.500.000mt per month, which he uses for household expenses and savings in his bank account (BIM).

He has never had a loan through another bank. He learned about Hluvuku through a friend who is also a client. This is his first loan with Hluvuku, in the amount of 25.000.00mt, which he will use to purchase wood for his carpentry business.

He promises to make his payments on schedule. In the future he plans to expand his business and intends to request additional loans from Hluvuku for that purpose.
