Arlindo is married and is the father of four children, two of whom are in school. He lives in his own home with his family and doesn't support anyone else besides them. He works as a security guard at the company G4S, and his current loan will be used to buy products (meat, rice, flour, soap, butter, beans, etc.) to increase and diversify his inventory.

In the future, he hopes to improve his business even more to increase his family's income and to offer them better living conditions. To do this, he promises to make his payments on time so he can request more loans from Hluvuku.

His challenge is the lack of certain products locally, so often he is obligated to travel out of the country to acquire them.
