Mauricia's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a tuk tuk to reach more customers who could not previously afford clean drinking water.

Mauricia's story

Mauricia is a proud mother of two boys aged 4 and 2 years. She is passionate about having a positive impact on her communityand yound sons. For this reason, she decided to own a franchise in Kireka so as to assist in providing safe drinking water to as many families as possible.

This loan will allow Mauricia reach more customers through the purchase of a delivery tool. This will save her from having to build up a capital base from her own profits, which would slow her potential for growth. The loan will be repaid from her profits, with all repayments projected to be made as scheduled
