Jagatha Maiya
Mrs. Jagatha Maiya M. lives in Thecho, Lalitpur. She lives in a single family home with her husband Mr. Mahendra M., a son and two daughters. Her older daughters are studying in grade 11 and 8 respectively. Her son is in primary school.


Mrs. M. opened a grocery shop two years ago to uplift the living standard of her family. Their condition is not good so they can't provide a better education for their children because in Nepal the cost of education is very high comparative to the income. To overcome this problem she opened a grocery shop.


Due to a lack of funds she can’t buy goods in her shop. So she is asking for her second loan of Rs 15000 to buy goods like rice, dal, noodles, and other items.


She needs to provide a better education for her children and wishes to help her husband upgrade the quality of life for her family.
