A loan of $525 helped buy construction material (cement, zinc plates, iron, stone and others) to continue the improvements he's making on his home.


Elias's story

Elias is married and the father of 1 son who already attends School, lives in a house lent to him by the government and doesn't support anyone else other than his family.

He works for Mozambique's national railway company, laying the tracks. With this loan he plans to buy construction materials (cement, zinc plates, iron, stone and others) to continue the improvements he's making on his home.

In future, Elias hopes to finish and furnish his house, leave the house lent to him currently and live in his own house. To this end he commits to duly paying off the loan in order to solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

His challenge is to obtain funds for investment.
