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

A loan helped to expand her weaving business by purchasing more materials and threads.

Pishakmacha's story

Pishakmacha is a 54-year-old married woman residing in the Imphal East district of Manipur. She has a household of five members and a monthly income of INR 7,000.

She makes bed sheets and sells them in the market. Due to the high operating costs, she is not able to make adequate savings. She has decided to expand the business and increase her income. So, she has applied for a loan of INR 20,000 from Chanura, one of Milaap's field partners. She will use the loan amount to buy more materials and threads.

She is thankful to the lenders.
