Dipikaben's story

Dipikaben is a 24-year-old woman hailing from Surendranagar district of Gujarat. She lives with her husband and a school-going daughter. A monthly income of 10,000 Indian rupees (INR) keeps the family of three running. From this amount, 8,000 INR goes towards expenses.

Dipikaben is an ambitious businesswoman, and she wants to improve her family's lifestyle. Hence, she started her own tailoring business. She sews and stitches clothes for customers in her neighbourhood and nearby areas. She profits from this and contributes to the household income.

Dipikaben now wants to expand her business to gain more income. Hence, she is seeking a loan of 15,000 INR from Prayas, a field partner of Milaap. The loan money will be used to invest in buying a sewing machine, which will aid her in stitching more frocks, dresses, saree falls, and suits. She hopes to earn 3,000 INR more after buying the new machine. Your loan will help a woman progress her business and make more income.
