Dwarika's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy another sewing machine and to expand her tailoring business.

Dwarika's story

Dwarika is a 44-year-old married woman living in Jaipur district of Rajasthan. She is engaged in a tailoring business to support her family of six, which includes three school-going children. She stitches clothes at home, and most of her customers are from the neighborhood. Her family manages to earn a household income of 16,000 INR per month.

Dwarika now wants to purchase a new sewing machine and other materials needed to expand her business. However, her insufficient savings do not allow her to do so out-of-pocket. Therefore, she has applied for a loan of 30,000 INR from Apani Sahkari Sewa Samiti, one of Milaap's field partners. She will use the money to first purchase a sewing machine. Then, she will also buy needles and threads, among other required materials.

This loan will help her expand her business and earn a better living. She and her family are thankful to the lenders for their support.
