A loan of $575 helped to purchase merchandise such as rice, refreshments, beer, noodles, flour and other kinds of foodstuffs.


Beliz's story

Beliz is married. He lives in a house that he owns and he has two daughters. One of his daughters is 5 years old and the other is 1-month-old.
He has been a merchant for over five years. He does business in his store located in the district of Manhiça (province of Maputo) and sells almost throughout the day. The money from the loan will be used to purchase merchandise such as rice, refreshments, beer, noodles, flour and other kinds of foodstuffs.
Beliz is hopeful that he'll make progress in his business from now on. It also should be noted that he runs a preschool from his home where his wife teaches. Because this preschool is so successful, Beliz would like to buy more equipment for the school. His main challenge is buying more consumer goods, that is to say, buying more furniture for his house, since he just finished doing construction work.
