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


A loan helped to purchase more stock of grass and fodder to expand her business.


Diwaliben's story

Diwaliben is a 42-year-old married woman from a small village of Kutch district, Gujarat. She has a family of 3 members and a monthly household income of INR 32,000. She is engaged in a fodder business. She purchases grass and fodder from the wholesale dealer and sells it at her shop. The fodder shop is the main source of household income and the income is barely enough to cover the family expenses. She plans to purchase more stock of grass 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.
