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

A loan helped to buy head bands for the new school year to offer school girls a variety they will like to make an income and escape extreme poverty.

Haleema's story

Haleema is extremely poor. This made her options in life limited.

She wants to make an income and improve her condition. This led her to the smallest business anyone can think of.

She works in the sale of head bands. A very simple idea that can probably save her from the situation she is in. A loan will help her get a variety of head bands for the new school year.

School girls love what she offers and always buy from her.
