Gitanjali's story

Gitanjali is a 30-year-old widow living with her mother, her five-year-old son and her seven-year-old daughter. After her husband’s death, she started working in a tailoring shop located in her village to manage her family. She gets only the labor cost, which is just 1,000 INR per month. She has four years of experience in this activity. She stitches salwar suits (traditional Indian dresses) for her customers who place orders for the dresses.

She wants to purchase a sewing machine so that she can run her own tailoring shop in her house and earn more income. She says that running her own tailoring shop will make her independent and allow her to give time to her children.

She has requested a loan of 20,000 INR to purchase a sewing machine and fabrics. She has a dream of giving the best quality education to her children and saving some money for her family’s future.
