A loan of $375 helped to pay for purchasing a rotating chair, mirrors and other accessories for her son’s salon.


Kanaka's story

Kanaka is a 52-year-old married woman living with her husband and her two sons. Her husband is ill, but he supports his family by pulling a trolley-rickshaw. A trolley-rickshaw is generally used to carry scrap material or for luggage transportation. Her younger son has had a salon for the last two years and the other son is working at a local hotel as a waiter.

She needs a loan of 20,000 Indian Rupees (INR) from People's Forum to purchase a rotating chair, mirrors and other accessories for her son's salon to make it as attractive and competent as the other shops in the village and increase the number of customers coming to the shop.

She aspires to earn more money through the increased facilities in the shop which will not only provide the basic needs for her family but also enable her to share the burden of her sick husband.
