Panchei's story

Panchei is a 32-year-old divorced lady living with her father and mother. Presently she works in a cashew factory as a daily laborer. She gets only 60 Indian Rupees (INR) per day which is not sufficient for her family to arrange for the basic necessities of life. Her father has a small snacks shop where he sells samosas (fried dough stuffed with potato curry), idlis (a steamed batter consisting of fermented black lentils and rice), and wadas (lentil doughnuts) from which he earns 70-100 INR per day. She wants to help her father in his business and make his shop bigger.

She has applied for a loan of 30,000 INR so that she can purchase ingredients like besan (gram flour), spices, oil, salt, potatoes, lentils etc. for making snacks in bulk. She also wants to purchase ingredients like like maida (wheat flour), sugar, dry fruits etc. for making sweets in her father's shop. Panchei says that she will resign from her daily labor work, because she thinks that she does not get paid enough for her work of 10 hours, and help her father full time in growing the snacks business.
