Vinodio Julião Dos Santos's story

Vinodio Julião dos Santos C. is a native of Boane, Maputo Province, and is 21 years old, married and father of a two-year-old son who still lives with his parents. Vinodio is a student in the 12th grade. Since 2007, he has bought and sold Mcel phone credits which he sells in his mother's store. That is, he runs the store in partnership with his mother. Vinodio plans to open his own store with this loan, where he will sell more products, including beer. At this time, he has had help from an employee of his mother's. He has monthly net revenue of 3000 meticais, and this is his third loan from Hluvuku and first on Kiva. Vinodio plans to repay early so that he can request another loan in order to start to assemble construction material for his house.
