Achyutanand is a 34-year-old differently-able person living with his parents in a small village of Ganjam District in Odisha, India. He is involved in the activity of making stone chips; he has some labourers working under him who help him in breaking the big rocks into small and medium-sized stone chips, which are used as a major component in construction. He supplies these stone chips to the dealers of construction supplies. He earns 8,000 INR from this business per month.
He wants to expand his business by purchasing more rocks and supplying in larger quantity. He also wants to establish his own shop in the market, so that he can directly supply the stones to the customers and earn more income.
Achyutanand has requested a loan amount of 20,000 INR for purchasing more rocks, establishing a shop in the market, and for hiring more work force. He has a dream to give a good living to his parents and save some money for his future.
