Kamalamani is a 29-year-old divorced lady who lives in her parental house with her mother, younger brother and her daughter, age 8 years old. Three years back, her husband divorced her and then she came to her parental house. She does not want to be a burden on her family, so she started to sell rice in the village. Every day, the daily laborers are buying rice from her. In this way, she earns 3,500 Indian rupees (INR) per month. She has two years of experience in this business. This income is not enough for her family’s cash flow. She wants to grow her business and to purchase rice in bulk.
Kamalamani has requested a loan of 20,000 INR for purchasing rice in bulk so that she can grow her business and fulfill her customers' demands. She hopes to provide better education and study materials to her daughter and take good care of her parents. She can live a happy life with her family members and fulfill her family members' requirements.
