Chanchala's story

Chanchala is a 34-year-old widow living with her mother-in-law and two sons aged 12 and 4. Her sons are attending school. She has been running a tailoring shop at her house for the past five years. She currently has two sewing machines and stitches dresses and bags for multipurpose use like to carry luggage, to carry for travelling, and for school-going children. She has contracts with local sellers in the market who come and collect the finished bags from her. She earns 6,000 Indian Rupees (INR) monthly from this business. She needs a loan of 30,000 INR for purchasing two new sewing machines and fabrics and to hire a workforce to help her with the additional work. She also plans to use a portion of her loan to build a separate room from her house where she can run her tailoring business as she says that it will not be convenient to run her growing business in the house with her sons studying. She hopes to have her sons go to a good school and save enough to see them become engineers.
