She is a member of Cama, Camfed’s alumni network and volunteers her spare time assisting girls at the nearest secondary school with guidance and counseling as well as sourcing food for needy children within her community. Placidia has been running a stall at the local flea market selling clothing to support her family. She has, on her own, been running her business for a year now and would love to see it expand.

With additional profits she plans to open a clothing shop and create employment for people within her community.
