Gonsalves's story

Gonsalves was born in the district of Boane in the province of Maputo in southern Mozambique. He is married with no children. He studied through the fourth grade and didn't continue due to the lack of financial resources. He lives in his own home with his wife and doesn't support anyone else. He has worked as an assistant at Bananalandia for more than 2 years. He makes 2,100 meticals a month, which he puts towards his home's expenses. He also saves some in his bank account. He has never had a loan with another bank. 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 8,000 meticals. He will use it to buy construction materials for his home (sand, cement, stone, beams, etc.). He promises to make his payments on time. In the future, he wants to finish his home, for which he plans to request more loans from Hluvuku.
