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

A loan helped to purchase a good quality cow and fodder in order to expand her dairy business.

Jyotsanaben's story

Jyotsanaben is a 35-year-old married woman from a small village of Surendranagar District, Gujarat. She has a family of 5 members and a monthly household income of INR 27,500.

She is engaged in the dairy business. She rears a few cows and sells the dairy products such as milk, buttermilk, cottage cheese, ghee, etc. in the local market. The dairy business is the main source of household income and the income is barely enough to cover the family expenses.

She plans to purchase a good quality cow and fodder in order to make more profit and increase her income. Hence, she has applied for a loan of INR 30,000 from Prayas, one of Milaap's field partners.

She and her family will be thankful to the lenders for their support.
