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

A loan helped to purchase threads, materials to weave saris, and expand her weaving business.

Chandana's story

Chandana is a 37-year-old married woman residing in Nadia district of West Bengal. She has a family of 4 members. She wants to support their weaving business to make and sell more saris. Her husband collects raw thread from the market and makes the thread into finished material with her help. They fit the threads into the tana (a part of handloom machine) and make the sari. They earn an amount of INR 8,700 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 INR 32,000 from Grameen Shakti, one of Milaap's field partners, to purchase more threads, materials and sell more saris in the local market. She will be thankful for your help and support.
