Jayanti's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to expand her dairy business by purchasing another cow.

Jayanti's story

Jayanti is a 32-year-old woman living in the Murshidabad district of West Bengal. She has a household size of 4 members and a monthly income of INR 9,000. She runs a dairy business for a living. She rears cows and sells their milk (and other dairy products such as ghee and butter) to the local dairy. However, her family's income is barely enough to cover their household expenses. At the end of each month, they're left with just INR 3,000 in savings. Hence, she wants to expand their business to make a better living. 

Jayanti has therefore applied for a loan of INR 20,000 from BJS, one of Milaap's field partners, to purchase another cow and sell greater quantities of milk. Your loan will help her family to become financially secure. She will be thankful to her lenders.
