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

A loan helped to purchase scrap, waste materials, by-products, etc in order to expand her scrap business.

Sunitaben's story

Sunitaben is a 21-year-old married woman from a small village in Dahod district, Gujarat. She runs a scrap business. She buys scrap and other by-products from factories, farms, etc and sells them for recycling purposes. She has a household of 2 members and a monthly household income of INR 9,000 and her monthly household income is barely enough to meet her family's needs.

She is planning on expanding her scrap-selling business. She plans on purchasing more valuable pieces of scrap, waste materials, by-products, etc from factories and farms. She will sell them to recycling companies or repair shops for a profit.

Therefore, she has applied for a loan of INR 20,000 from Prayas, one of Milaap's field partners.

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