Hi Jig

It depends on what your priorities are. If you're going there to save, 3500 MZN translates to less than 120 USD and, even though Mozambique has a comparitively low cost of living, I think that would be very difficult. You haven't mentioned whether you'll get accommodation but that would take a major chunk out of what you'd be earning, if it would even be enough.

This really depends on your expectations, and the standard of living you're comfortable with but it certainly isn't a lot of money.

All the best,
