A new grocery shop for a Mum in Sri Lanka

Five year old Vije dreams of becoming a doctor. Maybe now, he’ll realise that dream.

His mum, Valli, is part of a ChildFund microloan scheme that’s improving the income of thousands of families like his. Valli has used her loan to begin rearing goats and plans to open a grocery shop after she finishes the first round of her loan.

“The loan has improved my life and my son’s. If they put in enough effort all those who take the loan can definitely succeed.”  Valli.
