Valentim's story

Married and a father to two children attending school, Valentim lives in his own home and does not support anyone else.
He is a machine operator for a banana manufacturing company. He plans to buy construction materials (such as cement, iron, windows and similar) with this loan in order to continue the work on his home.
In the future, he wants to complete his home and build a business, for this he is committed to repay the Hluvuku loan in order to take on further loans.
His challenge is to stay healthy and work harder to overcome his financial difficulties.
