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


A loan helped to buy a newer, bigger cooking stove, more food items and packing containers.


Litea's story

Litea, 48, is one of many women selling their produce at the Nabouwalu Market. She prepares and sells food packs of fish, curry and other dishes daily and is in need of assistance to expand her business.

She's humbly requesting a loan to buy a newer, bigger cooking stove, more food items and packing containers so she can sell her packs on a larger scale to save time and maximise her efforts.

She's certain that her food pack business will gain momentum in the months to come and help her support her five children.
