Rebati's story

Rebati is a 33-years-old woman living in Balasore district of Odisha. She has a household of 3 members and a monthly income of INR. 8,500.

Her family has been struggling in the absence of a toilet at home or in the immediate vicinity. They are forced to walk long distances to find private spots such as dense bushes or isolated fields to defecate. In such areas, women and girls, especially, often resort to walking in the dark to relieve themselves.

Hence, she wants to build a toilet at home as soon as possible. She has therefore applied for a loan of INR. 25,000 from Gram Utthan, one of Milaap's field partners, to purchase raw materials and cover the costs of labor.

Your loan will help her family lead a healthy, safe and comfortable life. She will be thankful to her lenders.
