Ranjubala And Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a solar lamp for her shop so that it can operate after sunset.

Ranjubala And Group's story

Fifty-two-year-old Saila hails from Khurda district in Odisha. This area sees very frequent power cuts and the power supply in general is very erratic. Saila runs her own grocery store in her neighborhood where she sells daily staples. A lot of the sales happen in the evenings and nights, which is when a lot of people find time to shop. However, due to the lack of power supply on several occasions, she faces difficulties and is unable to keep her store open.

Such is the case with several other women in the locality, for running their households or businesses. Since life pretty much comes to a standstill, they finally took matters into their own hands and decided to seek a loan of INR 46,800 to purchase solar lamps. Lend to these ladies and help them gain access to lighting!
