Suranti has been engaged in vegetable cultivation at her village for the last 8 years. Her husband is helping her to promote the cultivation. Through the concerned business, she earns a monthly income of 8,000 INR. Her opinion is that their income is not sufficient to maintain her family and hence there is almost zero surpluses at the end of the month.

She planned to improve her cultivation in the course of loan, which resulted in taking the loan. She will purchase a huge quantity and different types of seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides for cultivation from local market. She hopes to get more and more profit from her business expansion and save money for re-construction of a house and to provide better education to her children.

The other 11 members of her group are also smart at their professions and also actively engaged with different businesses like a goatery, vegetable vending, animal trading, milk business, paddy business, and seasonal business, and with this loan hope to boost their livelihoods.
