Jivtiben's story

Jivtiben is a 45-year-old married woman residing in Kutch district, Gujarat. She is engaged in a small clothing business. She sells readymade garments such as sarees, shirts, leggings, and kurtas, etc., for women. She has a family of four members and an income of 15,000 INR per month. She wants to expand her business, but lacks proper funds to do so.

She has applied for a loan of 10,000 INR from Prayas, one of Milaap's field partners. She plans to purchase more kurtas, leggings, sarees, etc., to increase her sales. She hopes to increase her number of customers as well. She and her family will be thankful for all the support.
