Total loan: $350


Balasore, OD, India / Housing

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

A loan helped to purchase plaster, a door, tiles, etc. in order to construct a toilet.

Shantilata's story

Shantilata is a 45-year-old woman from a small village in Balasore district, Odisha. She is a housewife. She has a household of five members and a monthly household income of INR 8,000.

She and her family have no toilet in their house. The entire family has to go to a secluded field to defecate. With the rising flood levels, this is not only unhygienic, but also unsafe for her and her children.

She plans to purchase plaster, a door, tiles, etc. to build a toilet. However, her family's monthly income is barely enough to meet their needs. Therefore, she has applied for a loan of INR 25,000 from Gram Utthan, one of Milaap's field partners.

She and her family will be grateful for the support.
