Augusto's story

Augusto is married and the father of four children, all of whom attend school. He lives with his family in a home they own and also supports his sister, who lives with them. He works as a machine operator for the Mozambique railroad. He plans to use this loan to buy construction materials (cement, sand, paint, doors, etc.) to remodel the housing he rents out. In the future he hopes to build more rental housing and grow professionally. He is committed to paying off his loan so that he can request further loans from Hluvuku. The challenge he faces is the lack of investment capital and financial difficulties.
