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

A loan helped to purchase materials such as raw threads and needles in order to expand her handloom business.

Farida's story

Farida is a 46-year-old married woman residing in the Burdwan district of West Bengal. She and her family are engaged in the handloom business. They buy raw threads from the market, process them, and then use them to weave beautiful saris with their handloom machine. She has a household of 4 members and a monthly household income of INR 9,000. Farida wishes to expand her family business and make and sell more saris. Hence, she has applied for a loan of INR 35,000 from Grameen Shakti, one of Milaap's field partners. She and her family will be thankful for your support.
