Kamala Kanta is a 26-year-old differently abled person living with his parents in a village of Odisha, India. Currently he is engaged in the activity of providing tuition to the village children at his home. He earns 3,000 INR per month from this activity, which is not sufficient for his family. His parents’ health condition is also not good.
He has a plan to start a variety store where he will sell biscuits, wafers, electric bulbs, spices, lentils, hair oil, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc. He says that doing so will increase his family's income, and he would be able to take good care of his parents.
Kamala Kanta has requested a loan of 30,000 INR for purchasing the above items and building a variety shop.
