Mario was born in the district of Boane in the province of Maputo in southern Mozambique. He is married and is the father of 2 children, one of whom goes to school. He studied through the third grade and didn't continue due to his parents' lack of financial resources. He lives in his own home with his family and doesn't support anyone besides them.

He has worked for a construction company as a cement truck operator for more than 10 years. He makes 12,725 meticals per month, which he puts towards his home's expenses. He also saves some in his bank account.

He has had loans with other banks, which he paid back without problems. He became familiar with Hluvuku through a colleague who is also a client of the institution. This is his first loan with Hluvuku, in the amount of 20,000 meticals, which he will use to buy construction materials for his home (sand, cement, sheet metal, iron, etc.).

He promises to pay back his loan on time. In the future, he wants to finish and furnish his home, for which he plans on requesting more loans from Hluvuku.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
