Pratima's story

Pratima is 34 years old – a widow woman living with her brother-in-law and her two children. She lost her husband more than six years ago due to a disease which he had been suffering from for the last 10 years. Pratima's husband was running a small grocery shop and, after her husband's death, Pratima took up this business. Her brother-in-law helps her to run this grocery shop. He brings grocery items from the nearby market. From this business, Pratima earns 3,000 Indian rupees (INR) per month. She is facing lots of financial problems with monthly household expenses and her brother-in-law's study. Now she wants to buy grocery items in bulk so she can manage more items in her shop. She has requested a loan of 15,000 INR for purchasing sugar, tea, biscuits, edible oil, spices, etc. She wants to provide her family the basic necessities of living and save some money for her children's studies.
