About Me

I am Francis Mbalanga, President and founder of Purity care Investments, a non governmental organisation which seeks to develop the livelihood of people living in rural communities in our country Zambia. i was born in the capital city of our country zambia and raised by my grandmother who was just a marketeer. during that time, education was something that only those from a rich family was exposed to and for people like myself, we had to cover long distances to find a government community school. it was from these had times that i made mind-up to fight this problem at ant cost.
after completing my secondary education i went for further education and managed to complete my career which is medicine. because i was raised in rural area, i dedicated my services to the people in rural areas who find it had to access medical care. during the period of primary and secondary education i experienced so many hardships one of them being covering long distances to access education.
i would love for my children to take these projects of to the next level and continue those who are struggling in the areas of education and health.
my hobbies are making friends and researching

we have started a project called the Nkulumashiba Project where we have started a community school project for the orphans, disabled and vulnerable in the mentioned community. we therefore need money to put up a structure for learning purposes.

My Business

I am currently running a drag store in my community. the drag store helps the community as medical issues are one of mans common need and no one can survive without it. i choose this business because its according to my field of work. the business gives me a 45% of every investment and this helps me pay all my bills and fund the organisation project.

Loan Proposal

The proposed loan will be used as follows, $80 will used to buy some medicine for the drug store which will give me a profit to pay back the loan in time and to continue finding the community school project. $30 will be used to buy roofing sheets for our single room as the raining season is soon approaching and $20 will be used for the school expenses. the rest of the money is what is used during the transaction.
