Walking in Marianne’s Footsteps will be taking place in the beautiful Richmond Park this year, so why not bring the whole family to show your support and fundraise for MicroLoan Foundation. There will be quizzes and snacks for everyone to enjoy. We’ll be providing you with a Chitenge (African batik wrap) with every registration and will be asking everyone to wear them on the day.

Marianne lives in a rural village in Malawi. She is a widow with 7 children to look after and used to walk 10km every day to the nearest town to sell firewood to just feed her family.
However today, thanks to a loan, training and support from MicroLoan, Marianne was able to start her own business. She now runs a tea shop in the village. The increase in household income means her children are well fed and healthy, and can all go to school.
