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

A loan helped to purchase iron rods, ropes, wires, etc., in order to expand iron balance making business.

Kalpona's story

Kalpona is a 32-year-old married woman living in a small village in North 24 Parganas district, West Bengal. She works in the sewing business and her other family member runs an iron balance making business. They make weighing scales used in grocery stores, and vegetable markets. She has a household of four members and a monthly household income of INR 8,000.

She wishes to expand her family's business by purchasing in bulk iron rods, ropes, wires, etc. She will use these materials to boost production and build better models for sale. However, her monthly household savings are barely enough to meet her family's needs. Therefore, she has applied for a loan of INR 20,000 from BJS, one of Milaap's field partners.

She and her family will be grateful for your support.
