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

A loan helped to purchase a cow and fodder to expand her dairy business.

Nurjima's story

Nurjima is a 37-year-old woman who resides in the district of Murshidabad, West Bengal. She has a household size of 4 members and a monthly family income of INR 10,000. She is a housewife, who runs a dairy business and her elder son works while the younger one studies. She wishes to increase her income by purchasing another cow hence she has approached BJS, one of Milaap's field partners, for a loan amount of INR 35,000. This money will also be used to purchase fodder for the animal and bear its other expenses. Through this venture she will be able to sell more products such as milk, butter, ghee, paneer, etc. Nurjima and her family will be ever-grateful to the lenders.
