Bani's story

Bani is a 30-year-old married woman hailing from the district of Alipurduar, West Bengal. She has a household size of five and a monthly household income of INR 9,000.

She and her husband run a carpentry business where they make and sell wooden chairs, tables, doors, cots, stools, cupboards, etc., and she wants to expand the business.

Hence, she has applied for a loan amount of INR 30,000 from one of Milaap's field partners, BJS. With the loan amount, they can purchase wood, plywood, paint, sandpaper, and other relevant materials for making furniture.

She is grateful to the lenders for this financial assistance.
