Flavio Jaime's story

Flavio Jaime M. is from the city of Maputo. He is 31 years old, married and has 3 children -- they are 3, 4 and 6 years old respectively. He is not responsible for anybody else. Flavio went to school only up until the 5th grade because he became an orphan at an young age and could not continue his education because he had to move in with his grandparents. He has always lived in the agricultural region of Massaca where he owns a smallholding and, for the last 13 years, has worked as a farmer. He works a split shift from 6:00am - 10:00am and 4:00pm - 6:00pm and he has 4 employees. He learned this skill by working on others smallholdings around the same area. The smallholding's monthly production may reach approximately 48000,00mt in horticulture trade -- a part of which gets saved away. He lives in his own home. This will be Flavio's second loan request. He previously obtained a loan of 30000,00mt from Pro-Credito. Flavio became aware of Hluvuku through a friend who was already a member. In the future, he wishes to build a loan-sponsored commercial establishment to sell agricultural products.
