Sandhya rani is a 28-year-old lady. She left her husband due to some personal reasons. Currently, she is staying with her parents, three brothers, and her six-year-old daughter in a small village of Odisha, India. She is supporting her family business which is to sell terracotta statues and masks.
She has 10 years of experience in terracotta now. She sells these statues and masks in the nearby market; her brothers assist her in supplying the finished product to the market. She supplies her products to the retailers in the capital city of Odisha, i.e., Bhubaneswar, and she also sells her products by the roadside at the time of some festivals. She wants to earn enough to save for her daughter's bright future.
She requested a loan of 30,000 Indian Rupee (INR) for purchasing clay, paints, and brushes and growing her business. She hopes to send her daughter to a better school and provide her a better education.
