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


A loan helped to purchase a door, taps, tiles, etc. in order to construct a toilet.


Snehalata's story

Snehalata is a 36-year-old woman from a small village in Jajpur district, Odisha. She is a housewife. She has a household of five members and a monthly household income of INR 8,500.

She and her family have no toilet in their house. With the rising flood levels in Odisha, this is not only unhygienic but also unsafe for her and her children.

She wants to construct a toilet in her home. She plans to purchase plaster, a door, tiles, etc.

However, her family's monthly household income is barely enough to meet their needs. Hence, she has applied for a loan of INR 25,000 from Gram Utthan, one of Milaap's field partners.

She and her family will be thankful to their lenders for their support.
