but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a cool storage box, fishing net, etc.

Indira Shg Group's story

Gangabati is 40 years old and lives with her husband, her four children and in-laws. She is engaged in selling dried and fresh fish in the market, which is six kilometers away from her village. Her husband catches fish from the lake near to her village. The demand for fish in the region is very high as it is consumed by most of the people. She makes dried fish by keeping the fish in sunlight until all the water evaporates and preserves them for future use (like when fish are not available in the market, in the rainy season). Dried fish is also used as a supplement to fresh fish. Gangabati, along with her group, is requesting a loan and she will use her portion to buy a cool storage box for keeping fish, fishing net and insecticides to prevent fish from decaying for her fishery business. She says that this will help her in strengthening the business and responding to client demand. This group is made up of neighbors and friends who formed the group Indira Self-Help Group (SHG). The members of the group have selected Gangabati as their president. The common goal of the group is to increase their business activity.
