The Prospero Foundation, founded by Ulrik DeBo of DeBondo Capital, is excited to announce that a microloan donation has been made to Afshan and her husband in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

Afshan is a 27-year-old responsible mother of one child, whose husband is the sole wage earner in the family, while she raises their child. He owns his own rickshaw, which is in dire need of maintenance and repair, thus diminishing his income, and putting his family in jeopardy.The funds they receive from The Prospero Foundation will allow them to bring the rickshaw back to perfect condition, allowing her husband to work to his full capacity once more, and ensure he can look after Afshan and their child.
