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

A loan helped to purchase flour, herbs, spices, etc. in order to expand her food stall business.

Dhaniben's story

Dhaniben is a 53-year-old married woman from a small village in Surendranagar district, Gujarat. She runs a food stall in her village. She makes and sells snacks for the people in her locality. She has a household of 3 members and a monthly household income of INR 45,000.

Dhaniben wants to add more items to her stall and add different varieties of chaat, a spicy snack in India. She is planning to purchase more stock of flour, herbs, spices, etc. to expand her food stall business. However, her monthly household income is not enough to meet these demands. Hence, she has applied for a loan of INR 20,000 from Prayas, one of Milaap's field partners.

Dhaniben and her family will be grateful to lenders for their kind support.
