Shantilata's story

Fifty-three-year-old Shantilata hails from the Khurda district in Odisha. She and her husband have one grown-up son. Their monthly household income is INR 11,000, out of which INR 7,500 is spent on covering household expenses. Shantilata runs her own papad and snacks business using black gram and other spices which she then sells in the market. With rising inflation eating into her income, she would like to expand her earning capacity.

Hence, she seeks a loan of INR 20,000 to purchase raw materials in bulk to expand her papad and snacks business. These items are usually always in demand in the neighborhood. Shantilata would be able to earn approximately INR 1,000 more per month via scaling up. Lend to her today and help her raise her standard of living.
