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

A loan helped to expand her handloom business to sell more hand-woven saris.

Sahidun's story

Sahidun is a 22-year-old married woman residing in the Burdwan district, West Bengal. She has a household size of three and a monthly income of INR 8,200.

She is engaged along with her husband in a handloom business. They collect raw thread from the market, make the thread into the finished material, fit the thread into a tana (a part of a handloom machine), and weave saris.

She intends to expand her business; hence, she has applied for a loan amount of INR 20,000 from Gram Bikash Kendra, one of Milaap's field partners. This will help her to support her husband to make and sell more saris in the local market.

She and her family will be thankful to their lenders.
