Romao's story

Romão is 25 years old. He's married and has two children who haven't reached school age yet. He completed 10th grade and lives in a rented house.
Romão has been a mechanic for several years and owns a shop where he provides auto repair services in one of the streets of the village of Moamba. With the current loan he intends to purchase cement, sand, metal sheets, iron, etc., so he can improve the condition of his shop.
He dreams of owning a large shop, owning a store that sells hardware and auto parts, owning a vehicle, and building a house for renting out.
His biggest challenge is the lack of money for accomplishing his projects.
