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

A loan helped to purchase groceries, oil, rice, etc., in order to expand her restaurant business.

Sumita's story

Sumita is a 35-year-old married woman living in a small village of Jalpaiguri, West Bengal. She runs a restaurant in her locality. She prepares steamed rice, lentils, curries, etc., to sell in her restaurant. She has a household of 5 members and a monthly household income of INR 9,500.

She is planning on expanding her restaurant business as she has a high demand in her locality for her food. She plans on purchasing groceries, oil, rice, etc. However, due to rising prices of ingredients, she is unable to meet her expectations. Her monthly household income is barely enough to meet her family's needs. Hence, she has applied for a loan of INR 40,000 from BJS, one of Milaap's field partners.

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