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

Beauty's story

Beauty is a 51-year-old married woman residing in the Burdwan district in West Bengal. She is engaged, along with her husband, in a handloom business. They collect raw thread from the market, make the thread into a finished material, fit the threads in a tana (a part of the handloom machine), and weave saris. She has a household size of 3 and a monthly income of INR. 8,700.

Beauty intends to expand her business; hence, she has applied for a loan amount of INR. 30,000 from one of Milaap's field partners, Gram Bikash Kendra. 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.
