Rama's story

Rama, is a 27 year old married woman residing in Burdwan district, West Bengal. Her husband has a hand loom business. He collects raw thread from market, makes thread into finished material, fits the threads in a tana (a part of hand-loom machine) and makes saris. She has a household of 4 members and a monthly income of 7,500 INR.

She wants to help her husband purchase thread in bulk to make and sell saris to customers to increase the family income. She has applied for a loan of 27,000 INR from Gram Bikash Kendra, one of Milaap's field partners.

She and her family are thankful to their lenders.
