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

A loan helped to purchase more flowers in order to expand her flower-selling business.

Charu's story

Charu is a fifty-two-year-old married woman residing in the Nadia district of West Bengal. She has a family with four members. She and her family sell flowers in the local market and they manage to earn 9,100 INR per month.

She wants to purchase more flowers from the wholesale market to increase the stock of products at their stall. Their present income is not sufficient to purchase the flowers. Since she runs the household, a higher standard of living will ensure a prosperous future for her family. She has applied for a loan of 40,000 INR from Grameen Shakti, one of Milaap's field partners, to purchase flowers in bulk and in many varieties to increase profits.

She will be thankful for your help and support.
