A loan of $550 helped to enhance her business and to construct a shelter to protect her goats from the rain.

Jemamani's story

Jemamani is a 39-year-old differently abled woman living with her mother, elder brother, and sister-in-law. She has a goat farm in which she currently has 10 goats. She purchases goat kids and sells them for meat to the local butcher shops when they grow. It takes 8 to 9 months for her to raise and sell them. She goes out in the morning to leave the goats for grazing in the fields and returns by noon. She then helps her sister-in-law in the household activities and then resumes taking care of her goats by feeding them at home. Her brother assists her in selling and maintaining these goats. In this way, she is earning to control her cash flow, which is not sufficient to manage her daily activities.

She says that there is a lot of demand during the months of April-July and October-December, the auspicious time for Indian weddings. Currently, she is not able to meet the demand during these months and other peak demand times. She wants to take a loan of 30,000 INR to purchase some more goat kids to be able to sell more and seize the opportunity during this peak demand period, as well as to construct a shelter for the goats to protect them from the rain.
