Banamali's story

Banamali is a 60-year-old physically challenged person living with his wife, son, and daughter-in-law. He sells tea, biscuits, betel and wafers in his shop, earning 2,000 Indian Rupees (INR) per month.

His son is a worker in a stone crushing factory. His son's job is to manually crush larger stones into smaller pieces with a hammer. These smaller pieces are then fed into a machine to make concrete.

He wants to purchase a refrigerator to sell soft drinks and buy more stock and variety of biscuits, betel and wafers through which he says he can increase his sales and customer base as well. He also wants to buy some wooden furniture, like benches, to seat his new customers and keep his existing customers for a longer time at his shop and increase his sales. A lot of meetings in the village happen over tea at shops like these and having benches for them to sit at his shop will enable him to get more of such customers and keep them for a longer time at this shop. This will increase his sales for tea and other merchandise as well.

He needs a loan of 25,000 INR for making these changes. With enough savings from the increased earnings he can make his dream of building a concrete house come true.
