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

A loan helped to buy groceries and a new tent for her canteen business.

Nolini's story

Nolini is a 31-year-old mother to her son. She is married to a farmer, and they live in their own home. Her son attends primary school, and Nolini runs a canteen business and sells in the same primary school that her son attends. Every school day, she prepares light and healthy lunches such as burgers and sandwiches and also drinks and sells them under a tree inside the primary school area.

With this loan, she hopes to buy groceries and also a new tent for her business, because she faces a problem with her business marketing area if it is bad weather. A tent will solve her problem where she will get shade for her canteen.
