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

A loan helped to purchase an additional stock of daily use commodities in order to expand her grocery store.

Premlata's story

Premlata is a 44-year-old married woman from Imphal West, Manipur. She has a family of four members, and a monthly household income of INR 11,800.

She owns a grocery store. She purchases several daily-use products and eatables such as rice, soap, candles, spices, biscuits, etc from the wholesale dealer and sells it at her shop. The grocery shop is the main source of household income and the income is barely enough to cover the family expenses.

She plans to purchase an additional stock of commodities in order to make more profit and increase her income.

Hence, she has applied for a loan of INR 30,000 from Chanura, one of Milaap's field partners.

She and her family will be grateful for your support.
