Jayanti's story

Jayanti is a 30-year-old widow living with her son aged 14 years in a small village near Odisha, India. She owns and manages a tailoring shop where she stitches clothes for her customers, when they place orders for stitching. She stitches 'salwar's, blouses and suits (all are Indian traditional dress) for them. She has one sewing machine in her shop. She has a very good relationship with her customers but she is not able to take orders in large amounts as she has only one sewing machine. She has a plan to purchase one more sewing machine for her shop and appoint another person as her helper, so that she can take orders in bulk and satisfy her customers. Jayanti has applied for a loan amount of 20,000 INR for purchasing a sewing machine, fabric and for appointing a person as her helper in her shop. She has a dream to have her son study in a good school and save some money for his higher studies.
