A loan of $700 helped to buy construction materials (cement, sand, stone and others) to enlarge his house.


Arlindo's story

Arlindo is married and the father of four children, all of whom attend school. He lives in his own house with his family and provides for two nephews who live with him.

He makes a living as an electrician and with this loan he intends to buy construction materials (cement, sand, stone and others) to enlarge his house.

In the future he wishes to get his driver's licence and to invest in his children's studies. For this, he is committing to paying the loan in order to request more from Hluvuku.

The challenge for him is to find a new market for his profession, so he can increase his monthly income.
