Kamadev owns and manages a variety store where he sells betel, coconut, incense sticks, biscuits, butter, tobacco sachets; garlands (used for worshipping god) etc. He established his shop in the village 4 years ago.
He is a 36-year-old, 'differently-able' person living with his wife and two sons aged 7 and 9 years old in a small village of Odisha, India. As he was not able to do any kind of work in which physical strength is required, he started a variety shop in the nearby market close to his village.
He has requested a loan amount of 25,000 INR for purchasing more stock of what he sells and a few new products like electric bulbs, detergents, soap, noodles, oil, etc., for his shop.
He has a dream: to have his children study in a good school and save some money to make their future secure.
