My name is Hermenegildo Jossefa Sitói, I am 24 years old, I live in the city of Maputo in Polana Caniço B. neighborhood. I am from the province of Gaza, Massangena district, I came to Maputo 2 years ago chasing a better life for me and my family, it wasn´t easy, but fortunately I got a break, I am a car washer in one of the avenues of Maputo city, Mao Tse-tung Avenue.
My activity has not been easy because we face many difficulties, one is that this activity is prohibited by the city council, but we still continue to do it so we can have something to eat in the end of the day, pay our rent and support the family.
From my house to my place of work I spend 20 meticais daily by “chapa” and when I don´t have money I just walk those 15km (30km round trip). The bicycle will help me a lot because I will not need to worry about transportation money and I can move more easily and above all I will improve my services, I can do house calls instead of being in a single location on the street.
One bike at a time, and this was my turn.
