Hulash Ch is a 31-year-old physically challenged person living with his parents and his wife.
He has a variety shop in his village. He has six years of experience in this business. Sometimes his wife helps him in managing the shop. He sells betel, biscuits, pickles, toffees, wafers, spices, lentils, cooking oil, etc., and earns 7,000 INR per month from this business. The total population of his village is about 500, and the people depend on his shop for their household goods. He is not able to meet the growing demand of the present scenario.
There is another betel shop in his village to compete with this shop, so he wants to purchase a variety of stock such as spices, oil, detergents and personal care merchandise like shampoos and toothpaste that he is selling right now and also more variety of chocolates and wafers.
He has requested a loan of 20,000 INR to add some more stock to his shop.
