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


A loan helped to purchase more stock of phanek, blouses, and bedsheets to expand her embroidery business.


Sushila's story

Sushila is a 36-year-old woman from Imphal West, Manipur. She has a family of four members and a monthly household income of INR 11,000. She is engaged in an embroidery business. She purchases finished fabrics such as phanek (traditional Manipuri attire), bedsheets, blouses, etc., and does the embroidery embellishments. Then she sells the final product in the nearby market. The income is barely enough to cover the family expenses. She plans to purchase more stock of finished fabrics 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.
