Jothi's loan finished fundraising, but these similar borrowers need your support

A loan helped to make a better living by starting a dairy business.

Jothi's story

Jothi is a 34-year-old woman living in the Nagapattinam district of Tamil Nadu. She has a household size of four members and a monthly income of INR 10,000. 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 1,500 in savings. Hence, she wants to start a new business to make a better living. 

She has therefore applied for a loan of INR 20,000 from Bharathi Women Development Center, one of Milaap's field partners, to purchase a goat and sell its milk along with other dairy products such as ghee and butter to the local dairy for a profit. Your loan will help her family to become financially secure. She will be thankful to her lenders.
