Shefali's story

Shefali is a 33-year-old married woman living in a small village of Falakata in Alipurduar District, West Bengal. She is a housewife and her husband runs a milk selling business to support the family. She has a household of four with a monthly income of INR 10,000.

She has a dairy business of her own. Now to develop the business, she wants to purchase a good quality dairy cow to rear and sell milk. She also wants to supply milk products like paneer, curd, ghee, etc. to her customers to earn additional income. She now wants to expand her business for a better income. That is why she has applied for a loan of INR 40,000 from BJS, one of Milaap's field partners. She plans to produce more amount of dairy products with the milk. She thanks all her lenders for the support.
