A loan of $725 helped to purchase construction supplies (bricks, iron, sand, rocks, cement, etc.).


Joao Tene's story

He's married and has five children, all of whom attend school. He lives with his family in a house he owns and also supports his parents by sending them money for food expenses.
He works as an equipment operator for Caminhos de Ferro Moçambique (a railway company in Mozambique). With the current loan he intends to purchase construction supplies (bricks, iron, sand, cement, etc.) in order to begin building his house.
In the future he wants to finish building his home and to build a store so that he can improve his monthly income. For that reason he pledges to repay the loan as scheduled, so he can request more loans from Hluvuku.
His challenge is the high cost of construction supplies and ensuring his children's education.
