Manas Ranjan's story

Manas Ranjan is a 29-year-old disabled person staying in the village of Odisha, India with his parents. He is the only child of his parents. As a physically challenged person, he is unable to do hard work, so his father has established a grocery shop for him in his village. He has four years of experience in this grocery shop. He is the only person in his family earning an income. This business is helping him to run his family. He sells rice, edible oil, grains, sugar, soap, hair oil and spices in his shop and earns 4,000 INR per month.

There are 70 families living in his village and they are dependent on his shop for daily household necessities but he is unable to meet the customers' demands as his shop is small and has limited stock. He wants to enhance his business by stocking more of what he sells and adding some more goods like detergents, toothbrushes, toothpaste, electric bulb etc. in his shop. He has a plan to purchase the goods in bulk so that it will reduce his transportation and buying cost. He has requested a loan of 20,000 INR to purchase these goods.

He hopes to build a house for his family and save some money for his future and his marriage.
