Namita And Group's story

At the age of 31, Namita runs a micro-business in her village in West Bengal. She lives there with her husband and two children – one son and one daughter. Both her children go to school.

To fund the expenses of her family, she runs a handloom business. She purchases raw thread from the market and prepares the thread to make a saree. She then uses this thread by putting it in the Tana (part of the handloom). At present, she makes a monthly income of Rs. 1,500. As her children grow up, she is worried if the income will suffice. She thus wants to expand her business so she can earn more. She seeks a loan so she can make and sell more sarees.

Namita is joined by 13 other women who also seek a loan to expand their respective handloom businesses. Your loan will help these women scale their businesses and earn better.
