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

A loan helped to purchase thread in bulk in order to expand her weaving business.

Sorojini's story

Sorojini,is a 37-year-old housemaker from a small village of Imphal West district, Manipur. She has and runs a weaving business in her home. She makes various kinds of phanek, khudei, woolen shawls, etc and sells them locally. She has a family of 5 members and an income of INR 10,700 per month.

Due to an increase in demand for her products locally, she is encouraged to expand her weaving business. She wishes to buy more thread in bulk plus other varieties of cloth with which she will make more phanek, khudei, woolen shawl, etc and plans to sell in the local market as well.

But due to an escalation in the price of thread and cloth, she is unable to bear the price. For this, she has applied for a loan of INR 30,000 from Chanura, one of Milaap's field partners.

She believes that expanding her business will help her in generating a better income in the future. She and her family will be thankful to the lenders.
