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

A loan helped to purchase thread and material to weave saris and expand her weaving business.

Itika's story

Itika is a 26-year-old married woman residing in the Nadia district of West Bengal. She has a family of 3 members. She wants to support their weaving business to make and sell more saris. Her husband collects raw thread from the market and makes it into finished material with her help to fit the thread in the tana (a part of a handloom machine). They then make sari. They earn an amount of 9,500 INR per month.

Since she runs the household, a higher standard of living will ensure better governance and a healthier and more prosperous future for her family and children. She has applied for a loan of 32,000 INR from Grameen Shakti, one of Milaap's field partners, to purchase more thread and material and sell more saris in the local market. She is thankful for your help and support.
