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

A loan helped to purchase more paddy in order to expand her rice making business.

Durga's story

Durga is a 41-year-old married woman who lives in the district of South Dinajpur of West Bengal. They have a family of five members. They have a monthly household income of INR 7,500, which barely makes their ends meet.

They have a rice selling business. They buy paddy from the farmers, process it at home and sell the fresh rice at markets. Now they want to expand their business but their low income cannot facilitate that. So she has applied for a loan of INR 20,000 from Grameen Shakti, one of Milaap's field partners, to buy more paddy from the fields. This will help them make a bigger sale and make more profits and savings.

She and her family will be grateful for your support.
