Total loan: $300


South Dinajpur, WB, India / Services

Chhanoyara's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase paddy, sacks, ropes, etc. in order to expand her paddy-husking business.

Chhanoyara's story

Chhanoyara is a 47-year-old married woman from a small village in South Dinajpur district, West Bengal. She is a housewife, and her other family members run a paddy husking business. They purchase paddy from farmers and pack it for sale at the local market. She has a household of four members and a monthly household income of INR 9,000. However, her family's monthly household income is barely enough for their needs; she also has a daughter and son to look after. Therefore, she has applied for a loan of INR 20,000 from Grameen Shakti, one of Milaap's field partners.

She plans on purchasing bulk quantities of paddy, sacks, ropes, etc. for her family's business. She hopes this will help expand her paddy-husking business.

She and her family will be grateful for your support.
