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

A loan helped to purchase goats in order to start an animal husbandry business.

Saraswathi's story

Saraswathi is a 20-year-old married woman living in Tiruchirappalli district of Tamil Nadu. She has a household of 3 members which includes a school-going child. She is a daily wage labourer and manages to accumulate a monthly household income of INR 15,000. Her monthly household expenses amount to INR 8,000.

She has applied for a loan of INR 25,000 from Bharathi Women Development Center, one of Milaap's field partners. She will use the loan to set up her own business of animal husbandry of goats. She plans to buy goats and rear them in order to sell products obtained directly or indirectly from them, such as milk, meat, manure, etc. Setting up her own business will help Saraswathi make a better life for herself and her family. The increased income will also help her become financially independent.

She and her family will be grateful to you for your support.
