A loan of $350 helped buy more products so he can respond to demand and reinforce his stock.


Joao's story

João is married, the father of 4 children - only 3 of whom go to school - and lives in a house he owns. In addition to his family, he also supports his mother who lives in another house.

He's been a trader (selling beer, wine, cookies, oil and other basic products) for more than 5 years. He's also a carpenter by profession and his wife supports him in his commercial activities.

With the current loan of 10,000.00 MZN he plans to buy more products so he can respond to demand and reinforce his stock.
He dreams of expanding his business and growing professionally. His main challenge is a lack of funds to invest in his business.
