Feleciano's story

Feleciano is marrid and is the father of six children, some of whom are still in school. He lives in his own home with his family and doesn't support anyone else besides them. He works as a guard at a public institution and also has a business selling various products. He will use this loan to buy rice, flour, beans, oil, soup, fish, etc., to increase his quantity of merchandise and to satisfy his customers. In the future, he hopes to have a tractor to be able to work the land. To do this, he promises to make his payments on time so he can request more loans from Hluvuku. His challenges are the elevated cost of living and his very low wages.
