João's story

João comes from Homoine, province of Inhambane. He's 58 years old and married. He has six children, all of whom attend school, and he supports his mother-in-law who lives with him. He has worked for I.F.P. (a teacher training institute) for over 12 years and earns an income which he uses to pay for household expenses. With this loan he intends to purchase construction supplies such as zinc sheets, beams and cement. This is his 7th loan with Hluvuku, and the previous loans were used for the same purpose. In the future he intends to acquire some plots of land for farming. He also intends to finish building his house in order to provide comfort for his family.
