Alberto's story

Alberto was born in the city of Maputo in the province of the same name in southern Mozambique. He is married and is the father of 2 children, one of whom goes to elementary school, and the other is still a baby. He studied through the 12th grade. He lives in his own home with his family and doesn't support anyone else besides them. He has been a laboratory assistant for more than 5 years for MISAU. He has a monthly salary of 3,700 meticals that he puts towards his home's expenses. He also saves some in his bank account at the BIM bank. He has never had a loan with another bank. He became familiar with Hluvuku through a friend who is also a client of the institution. This is his second loan with Hluvuku in the amount of 15,000 meticals, which he will use to buy construction materials for his home (windows, doors, cement, sand, etc.). His previous loan was for 12,000 meticals, which he also put towards his home. He promises to make his payments on time. In the future, he wants to finish his house and invest in a science and technology class, for which he is planning on requesting more loans from Hluvuku.
