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

A loan helped to expand her family's handloom business.

Halima's story

Halima is a 45-year-old woman living in the Nadia district of West Bengal. She has a household size of 5 members and a monthly income of 7,800 INR.

She and her husband run a handloom business for a living. They purchase threads from the wholesale market and weave sarees on their loom. However, their income is barely enough to cover their household expenses. At the end of each month, her family is left with just 3,200 INR in savings. Therefore, she wants to expand their business to make a better living. 

Halima has therefore applied for a loan of 25,000 INR from Gram Bikash Kendra, one of Milaap's field partners, to purchase a better loom and a bigger and more varied stock of threads. Your loan will help her family to become financially secure. She will be thankful to her lenders.
