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

A loan helped to purchase a sewing machine, and needles to expand her tailoring business.

Chinta's story

Chinta is a 23-year-old woman from a small village, which is part of the Jaipur district in India. She has a household of 4 members and a monthly household income of 14,000 INR.

She and her other family member are engaged in a tailoring business. The income is barely enough to cover the family expenses. She plans to purchase a new sewing machine, needles, threads etc to expand her stitching business.

Hence, she has applied for a loan of 30,000 INR from Apani Sahkari Sewa Samiti, Milaap's field partner. She and her family will be thankful to the lenders for their support.
