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

A loan helped to purchase tomatoes, potatoes, onions, etc. in order to expand the vegetable business.

Manika's story

Manika is a 33-year-old married woman living in a small village in Murshidabad district, West Bengal. She is engaged in the vegetable business. She sells tomatoes, potatoes, onions, etc. in her store. She has a household of four members and a monthly household income of INR 9,500.

She wants to purchase more stock of tomatoes, potatoes, onions, etc. to sell in the local market and expand her vegetable business. However, her household income is barely enough to meet her family's needs. Therefore, she has applied for a loan of INR 30,000 from BJS, one of Milaap's field partners.

She and her family will be grateful for the kind support.
