Sabita is a 37-year-old lady staying with her parents and younger brother. She started a mobile business 10 years ago where she sells cooking oil, salt, spices, lentils, rice, snacks made of lentils, and other grocery items. She sells her products in the weekly markets which are organized in the villages near her village. She started this business to assist her father financially and to manage the family requirements. In this way she earns 3,000 INR per month, which is not sufficient to support her family. She wants to grow her business by purchasing more quantity of what she sells, so that she can easily satisfy her customers' demand.

Sabita has requested a loan of 30,000 INR to purchase goods in bulk amount and add some new varieties of stationery items and snacks to her shop.
