Patrisha's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase maize in bulk to sell.

Patrisha's story

Patrisha is 21 years old. She lives with her mother and eight siblings in Kilosa district. She is volunteering as a Camfed learner guide; she gives time each week to mentor young students and community members in life skills and personal growth.

Patrisha is requesting a loan, which she will use to buy maize in bulk from farmers and sell in town markets. Her maize business enables her to help her siblings by paying school contributions and to support her family with daily basic needs. She plans to use the profit to expand her business by opening a shop. Her “social-interest” on the loan will be paid through Patrisha's weekly two and a half hours of volunteering.
