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

A loan helped to purchase blouses, shirts, etc. to expand her clothes selling business.

Binodini's story

Binodini is a 54-year-old married woman living in Imphal West district of Manipur. There are 6 members in her family. With a monthly household income of INR 12,500, the family barely earns enough to make ends meet.

She has a clothes selling business. She now wishes to grow her business but her monthly savings cannot support this expansion. Thus, she has applied for a loan amount of INR 30,000 from Chanura, one of Milaap's field partners. She will use this loan to purchase phaneks, blouses, scarves, shirts, etc. in bulk and sell them to her customers.

She will be thankful for your support.
