There's a weight limit for folding bikes, depends on manufacturers recommendations..

Normally lah, that seatpost clamp cannot tahan la for heavyweights.. other parts, im not so sure. But the usual suspects will be the wheelset, clamping parts.

IMHO, MTB is more comfortable and durable for heavier folks..

just to add some info,

if cycle on the road most of the time,
better take hybrid. flatbar like MTB but with roadbike setup. easy to pedal and more lighter

Ever consider mini velo? A glamour name for non-folding small wheel bicycle. BMX-ish with multi gears.
I am just 10+kg lesser than you. Hence no Foldies for me. But I don't like big wheels and I am too old to go fast and exploring jungle…
Another factor you should consider is how will you be ridin? with friend or solo? Or looking to join some clubs or riding groups.
Anyway, what ever you buy, stay away from light wheelset with spoke number lesser than 36 if you can.
Smaller wheel always stronger. Just thought you might want to know.
And stay away from everything plastic (carbon). Metals (aluminum, steel) are your friends.
There is a rough guide I take the bicycle weight should be no more than 15% of the riders weight. Which is really easy for us to achieve. 15kg bikes are plentiful. Don't blame the bike weight if it's 12% of your body weight.

MTB not so fun let… get anything 20" for a start. When pusing taman won't look so out of place. And it's easier on the legs too.

This started out as an used bike.
Over the years turn into this… all in less than 1.5k. (including the helmet) spending done over 6~9months.
Now done many thousand km… ROI very good.

*Ps, set up for old obese geezer rider… plenty of wheel spoke, note the not so narrow tires, wide gear range, Wide handlebar(this is genuine BMX handlebar and stem).
